I have excess skin above my eyelids that impairs my vision. Will a blepharoplasty help improve this? Would insurance cover the procedure?
Visual impairment is an indication to have your upper eyelids operated upon if excess skin is what is causing the visual impairment. Insurance will cover a portion of the procedure however, the criteria are fairly strict and you will need a visual field test by your ophthalmologist prior to insurance covering the blepharoplasty.
