Options for Treating Droopy Eyelids

Acquired ptosis - or droopy eyelids results when the structures of the eyelid are inadequate to maintain lid elevation. This makes us look tired and can reduce our peripheral vision making it hard to see.


Treatments for this condition include surgical options such as ptosis repair or blepharoplasty - which lifts the lid. These surgical procedures are outpatient procedures which can be performed in the office under local anesthesia and provide long lasting results.


We are proud to now also be able to offer non surgical options including UpNeeq eye drops. Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eye drop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) Apply one drop of Upneeq® per eye to see a visible difference in as little as 15 minutes. It stimulates the Mullers muscle to contract, thus providing a temporary lift of the lid with just one dose.


Call us today at 703-528-3910 if you would like a personal consultation with Dr. Amy Kotecha to evaluate your eyelids and discuss treatment options.! And see the world with your "eyes wide open" :)
