Is Upneeq right for you?
in Loudoun County at AVIE!
Acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common condition that most often occurs with age. It typically results when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the lid to droop. Other possible causes include cataract surgery, contact lens wear or an underlying medical condition. It’s important to be evaluated by a doctor because low-lying lids can also be related to more serious conditions such as stroke and/or brain aneurysm, Horner syndrome, myasthenia gravis, eye infection and eye tumors.
FDA-approved Upneeq is an ophthalmic solution containing oxymetazoline hydrochloride, an alpha-adrenergic agonist that stimulates the Muller’s muscle, an involuntary eyelid muscle, to contract.
Your first step is coming in for a personal consultation. We will carefully consider your health history, the condition of your eyelids and other factors to determine if Upneeq is suitable for your needs.
