Your eyes are some of the first points of contact you make with people that you meet or interact with on a daily basis. Whether we like it or not, they are the window into how someone feels without using words to describe their mood. It’s important that you make a good impression with loved ones and perfect strangers. Age, wear-and-tear, and other anatomical factors may give off a far different facade than how you are actually feeling. If you are tired of looking, well...tired, then blepharoplasty, or more commonly known as, eye lift, may be just what you’re in need of.
Aside, from vanity, there are serious medical reasons for getting an eye lift. Some issues that arise from aging may make for very uncomfortable day-to-day living. If you are suffering from any of these complications you may want to consider either an upper blepharoplasty or a lower blepharoplasty to alleviate the symptoms that you are enduring. Below are some serious reasons to have an eyelift:
- Obstructed Vision - With aging, sometimes the skin around the eye will give way to sagging and it may droop into the path of your vision. When this occurs, it will limit your range of vision and create unsafe situations for driving, riding a bike, or operating any vehicle at higher speeds, like boats, or ATVs. Even walking and running may be compromised from lack of peripheral vision.
- Chronic Watery Eyes - When skin from the eyelid sags too low onto the eye, too much pressure is applied and produces an extreme amount of tears. This overabundance of tears can cause a number of problems, like blurred vision. This can create or contribute to a myriad of dangerous situations and cause conflicts with the simplest of daily activities.
- Chronic Dry Eyes - As the drooping of the upper creates watery eyes, the sagging of the lower eyelid can do the opposite. Bags under your eyes can weigh down your lower eyelid and leave your eye susceptible to excess exposure and wind drying your eyes out far too often. In leaving your eye exposed and dry, debris is not able to be cleansed from the eye as easily and will leave them chronically irritated and hamper quality of vision.
- Looks - Aside from the functionality of your eyes, it’s important that your eyes give off the charm and radiate positive vibes to all of those that you encounter. Frankly, when your eyes look tired or irritated it is hard to make people feel good when talking to you. Also, it looks as though you are in a constant struggle to be comfortable….which you are.
At the end of the day, you have to use the resources available to you to make you as comfortable as possible. Not only will it improve your quality of life, but all of your loved ones and those that you encounter.
