Droopy eyelids can also affect your vision. Hooded eyelids or weak eyelid muscles can make it more difficult to open your eyes completely, which limits your field of vision.

Eye Specialists of Louisiana combines the latest, most innovative techniques and technologies with years of experience and research to produce visually stunning results. We take pride in surpassing our patients’ expectations in achieving the well-rested, youthful appearance they desire.

Eyelid surgical procedures from board-certified physician Thomas Stuckey III, M.D.

Dr. Stuckey is skilled in a variety of highly-specialized interventions for the eyelid, including:

  • Blepharoplasty
    This common procedure is used to repair droopy eyelids. It reshapes the upper or lower eyelid by removing excess skin, tissue, and fat. Its high level of patient satisfaction has made it one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today for treating puffy eyes, droopy eyelids, and conspicuous folds surrounding the eye and creating a natural, bright-eyed, younger-looking you.
  • Ectropion & Entropion repair
    Aging lower eyelids can weaken and begin to rotate inward or outward. Inward-facing eyelids can cause the lashes to rub against the eye, which can lead to chronic irritation. Outward-facing eyelids expose the inner side of the eyelid to air, which can lead to redness, irritation and excessive tearing. These issues can be repaired by tightening the lower lid using canthoplasty, a highly specialized procedure that reconstructs the outer corner of the eye.
  • Removal of lid lesions
    Various growths, infections, skin tags, and cysts can occur on both the upper and lower eyelids. Fortunately, many of these eyelid disorders are not vision- or life-threatening. However, they may cause irritative symptoms like burning, foreign-body sensation or pain.
