26 years post surgery
« on: March 31, 2022, 03:27:14 pm »
Hello.  In my mid sixties after AN surgery 26 years ago and continuing to experience eye care challenges due to dryness and lower lid drooping.  I'm considering a visit to my eye surgeon who has cared for me off and on over all these years.  The most helpful procedure was a lower eyelid lift that rolled the lid closer to the surface of my eye.  That was 10 years ago and gravity continues to challenge the affected side of my face.  Has anyone had similar procedures at my age and if so, what have been your results.  I'm wanting to hear from others before consulting with my surgeon.  Thank you for any information and I would be happy to answer any questions or share about some of my experiences if that would help anybody.

Hi cmjrff!  And welcome to the Forums!

Wow, you had the AN surgery 26 years ago.  I can only imagine how it was done back then compared to how it is done today!  I am certainly wondering what kind of improvements they have made in doing eye procedures since the one you had 10 years ago.

Hopefully, someone from the AN Community can share their experience and tell what their results have been.  That would be very helpful for you before you consult with your surgeon.

You are certainly a valuable resource person for anyone who is having similar issues.  Thank you for posting!
