Any eye exercises I can do?
I'm 8 months post op from a right (yes only the right) lower eye bleph revision. The original surgery was in July 2005. My right lower eyelid no longer literally hangs out but still have noticible scleral show. I do not want more surgery. Are there any eye exercises I can do to tighten this area so it somewhat matches the other eye? Please help. I feel like a troll and would like not to. :(

postblepharoplasty problem  May 21, 2011 10:56 AM

I see too often problems with lower eyelids after lower blepharoplasty, and many require revisional surgery due to the fact that the eye becomes irritated due to poor blink and incomplete closure. Having said that, there are nonsurgical options (such as injecting filler to raise the lower eyelid). You should consult an oculoplastic surgeon familiar with these treatment methods. (You can refer to my article on using fillers to improve eyelid malpositions.)
