The eye surgery is necessary for some people. It depends also on how severe your eye lids are turn out or how tightly drawn are your eye lids. Mine were very tight and red all the time and watered alot. The surgury does not last (mine 5 years).My eye lids on each end were cracking and hurt when i turned my head from side to side. I am please that i had them redone, although dissappointed that they probably will only last 5 years. I lube the outside with eucrein & eye lube regualrily. I have noticed now that my eye site has improved and my eyes don't water except when it is windy or i'm under a ceiling fan. I think your plastic surgen should know what is best.
