• Will eyelid surgery worsen my dry eye?


    Question:

    I’m having eyelid surgery to remove skin "eye bags" of the upper and lower lids. Will this operation make my dry eye worse?


    Answer:

    It should not, but you should discuss your concern with your surgeon to make sure that you are not over corrected. This can weaken your eye blink and increase dryness after surgery.
