Dad's Eyes

My father is currently, like right this moment, having plastic surgery done on his eyes—or more specifically, his muscles and eyelids. I think the surgeons are altering the muscles that control his eyelids to lift the skin around his eyes higher so that he has a greater range of vision. As he has aged, the skin has actually begun to interfere and he can't get a big enough aperture to admit light so that he can see well. (My uncle recently had the exact same procedure done and it has helped him a lot. I think I can foresee my future ...)

I think it's wacky that my dad is having this procedure done. I also think that it's RAD that they can do a little outpatient surgery that will improve his vision immensely.

If you can spare a thought, please think a positive one for my daddy, especially for rapid healing and a successful correction of the problem.

I have had older friends and Co workers have this procedure done (I used to remember the fancy name for it, lol!) Recovery has been generally quick. Best wishes for speedy recovery for your papa.

Is he having both eyes done at once, or one, then the other?

Thanks, Liz. Both at once. He was told to expect a two-day recovery.

My grandmother had this done, too. Worked wonderfully for her. Good thoughts for your dad!
