Blepharoplasty - How To Prepare For It?

The surgical procedure to correct the appearance of eyelids is called blepharoplasty. The correction is done by removing extra skin, fat and muscle that makes the eyelids droop.

Uses-

Eyelids start drooping when the muscles supporting your eyelids weaken as you grow older. Excess fat accumulates below and above your eyelids as a result, which leads to eye bags and droopy eyelids.

Besides making you look older than your age, droopy eyelids can also affect your vision. Blepharoplasty can improve your vision and give your eyes a polished look at the same time. Some other benefits include:

  • Excess deposits of fat that make eyelids look puffy are removed with the help of blepharoplasty.

  • Eye bags are reduced.

  • Drooping eyelids which end up revealing the sclera (the white part in your eyeballs) are fixed.

  • Fine wrinkles and excess skin around lower eyelids are corrected.

Blepharoplasty is usually combined with procedures such as skin resurfacing, face-lift or brow-lift.

Risks-

Blepharoplasty, like every other surgical procedure, has certain risks, which include—

  1. Bleeding and infection

  2. Irritated, dry eyes

  3. Trouble closing eyes and other associated problems

  4. Prominent scarring

  5. Eye muscle injury

  6. Skin discolouration

  7. Follow-up surgery is needed

  8. Short-term blurry vision, or in unusual cases, loss of vision

  9. General risks associated with surgery such as blood clots, anaesthetic reactions, cardiac and other coronary problems.

Preparation-

Before the surgery can be scheduled, a surgeon and ophthalmologist will be consulted to record your medical history and discuss your expectations about the surgery. Then, before the procedure can begin, the following steps will be followed:

  1. First, you will be examined physically; your doctor will test your tear ducts and take measurements of your eyelids.

  2. Second, your eyes will be examined and your vision will be tested.

  3. Lastly, your doctor will take photographs of your eyes which will facilitate and guide him/her through the course of the surgery.

Results-

The effects of blepharoplasty are long-lasting and the corrections are permanent. Durable sun protection of the eyes helps in maintaining the corrections made.

Although, you can get excellent results from one surgery, sometimes you may need multiple procedures to achieve the desired look.

Treatment of Farsightedness

Homeopathic Treatment of Farsightedness

Homeopathic remedies are useful in the treatment of various eye problems including farsightedness and shortsightedness. Some of the homeopathic remedies for farsightedness are:

  • Calcarea
  • Ruta
  • Apis
  • Pulsatilla
  • Silica

Acupuncture & Acupressure Treatment of Farsightedness

Acupuncture helps to increase the blood flow to the brain and eye. It helps in stimulating the retinal nerve growth factors and leading to metabolic changes in the central nervous system. It focuses on the activation of eye muscles to facilitate eye focusing.

Conventional / Allopathic Treatment of Farsightedness

The conventional or allopathic treatment for farsightedness is the use of glasses and contact lenses.

Surgical Treatment of Farsightedness

There are different types of surgeries that are used in the treatment of farsightedness:

  • Photoreactive keratectomy (PRK) – The process uses a laser to flatten the back of the eye to help the images focus more closely to the retina.
  • Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) – it involves cutting a flap in the cornea and then removing some of the corneal tissue with a laser, and then the flap is replaced.
  • Laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK) – Instead of creating a flap in the cornea, the surgeon creates a flap involving only the cornea’s thin protective cover (epithelium).

Dietary & Herbal Treatment of Farsightedness

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Eat dark green leafy foods
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin A
  • Avoid the intake of refined sugars and processed foods

What is Farsightedness

Farsightedness or hyperopia is a condition where you see far or distant objects clearly, but not objects up close which get blurred. It is caused when light rays overshoot the retina and focus behind it.

Symptoms of Farsightedness

  • Nearby objects may appear blurry
  • You need to squint to see clearly
  • Constant blurred vision
  • Eye strain, burning eyes and aching
  • General feeling of irritability and nervousness
  • Eye discomfort or a headache doing close tasks, such as reading, writing, computer work or drawing
  • Causes of Farsightedness
  • Eyeball being too small
  • The focusing power being too weak

Risk factors of Farsightedness

  • Hereditary factors

Complications of Farsightedness

 Diagnosis of Farsightedness

Farsightedness is diagnosed by a basic eye exam. A complete eye examination involves the following tests.

  • Eye movement testing
  • Glaucoma testing
  • Refraction test
  • Retinal examination
  • Slit-lamp examination
  • Visual acuity

Precautions & Prevention of Farsightedness

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Do not smoke
  • Use good lighting
  • Use the right glasses
  • Wear sunglasses that block UV radiation
  • Have your eyes checked regularly

I am a 45 years old female without any issues of diabetic or blood pressure. Underwent surgery on both the eye's for orbital thyroid fat removal. After the surgery there is alignment problem in both the eyes. Because of this it looks squint. My vision in both the eyes are good. Can this be cured? Went to many doctors but in vain no one wanted to help they said I should stay like this only. But I am finding it very difficult to lead a normal life with no self confidence at all. Please reply me if it can be solved and what would be the cost rough figure also will do.

I think you underwent decompression for thyroid exophthalmos, if you vision is equally good in both eyes there is no need to worry. Some apparent squint will be resolved with time as limitation of movement is over with resolution of orbital oedema. Donot worry much and keep in touch with your operating surgeon. How long it had been since you got the operation. I think you should Waite for 6 month before planning reoperation.

We cannot manage the fat deposition whenever we want... it is your constitution... To rejuvenate your skin you may try doing Regular Cleansing, toning, moisturizing, using masque, scrub every week... and Facial at least once a month.... Plus take a multivtiman tablet...
