In brief: Yes

The cause of visual obstruction can be excess skin, but usually it is also drooping of the brow.
It can be corrected by removing the excess skin with or without a brow lift. A consultation with a surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery would be beneficial to determine what is required to completely correct your concerns.

In brief: Yes, definitely

Drooping eyelids most often block your upper and side vision.
When this occurs, most insurances will cover surgery to lift the eyelids and remove the excess upper lid skin. Find an oculoplastic surgeon in your area.
