Upneeq is the only FDA-approved once-daily prescription eye drop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) that lifts your upper eyelids to widen your eyes.
Acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common medical condition that can develop most commonly as you age, occurs when muscles in the eyelid stretch or weaken causing the upper eyelid to droop, or may be caused by other issues such as surgery, contact lens wear, or underlying medical condition. This can lead to vision impairment by reducing your field of vision which may interfere with your daily functions such as driving, reading, computer use, and more.
Upneeq is a great non-invasive alternative to those who do not wish to go under blepharoplasty (a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids) or does not meet their insurance requirement to have surgery performed.
At Optical Edge, our doctors will carefully evaluate you if you are a good candidate for Upneeq and will monitor the health of your eyes in case you have any side effects or complications to the eye drops. It is generally proven to be safe and effective, however some side effects may occur including, but not limited to, eye redness, dry eye, blurred vision, eye irritation, and headaches.
