the eye lid surgery was necessary because the eye lids would not completely close,therefore leaving the eye subject to infection and getting skin flakes or having eyes dry out & get stuck .Slowly your eye lids turn outward more and doesnot touch the eye and spread your tears and lube your eye properly.As a result your eye can get damaged. I am 52 you may not need this till you get older. Meanwhile you (natural tears )to lube your eyes.Hope this doesnot scare you or worry you . The bad part is that the Plastic surgeon said other doctors who have preformed this surgery on ich people it last for about 5 years. My surgeon said 16 peoplein the USA have had this done this year.Well enough for now If you want my info email me at
