Acquired ptosis is a common medical condition that often occurs as we age. It is typically caused by stretching or weakening of the levator muscles in the upper eyelid. However, other more serious medical conditions can also result in sagging eyelids. Low-lying lids create a sleepy or aged appearance, and even interfere with daily functioning due to a reduced field of vision. If heavy upper eyelids are causing difficulty reading, driving, or using the computer, or you dislike how it affects your appearance, you may be a candidate for this treatment. With Upneeq eye drops, acquired ptosis treatment is simple, painless, and effective. Contact our office to learn more about how you correct acquired ptosis.
Upneeq is an FDA-approved eye drop that requires a prescription. It is a safe, clinically-proven treatment for acquired ptosis in adults. One drop should be applied in the affected eye(s), once a day.
When using Upneeq, do not let the tip of the vial touch your eye or any other surface, as this can spread bacteria and cause irritation.
If you wear contact lenses, remove them and wait 15 minutes before administering Upneeq.
If you are a patient with glaucoma, Upneeq may increase the risk of eye pressure due to fluid build up.
Common side effects can include eye irritation, dry eye, eye redness, eye inflammation, blurred vision, and headache. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact a physician.
