Droopy Eyelids: A plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon can evaluate you to determine is blepharoplasty surgery is indicated. You may need visual field testing to confirm that you do not have a "field cut" due to eyelid position. Anecdotally patients that I know who have had blepharoplasty have been glad they had the surgery
