Ptosis Treatment – Upneeq Eyedrops

dry eye Thumbnail.jpgAcquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common medical condition that:

-Can develop later in life

-Affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age

-Usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the upper eyelid to droop

-May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. It could also be a sign of a more serious medical condition.

We offer our patients in Lomita and the surrounding areas the Upneeq treatment. Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes.

Most patients in clinical trials of Upneeq had a lift in their eyelids in as little as 2 hours.

84% of patients had some form of improvement.74% of patients had more than a 50% improvement.In one study, some patients saw a lift in their eyelids as fast as 5 minutes after the first dose.

In clinical trials, Upneeq helped patients with acquired ptosis see more—on the first day of treatment!

87.8% of patients had some form of improvement.

40.8% of patients had at least a 50% improvement on Day 14 (2 hours after applying Upneeq).
