I have glaucoma. Is it medically safe for me to undergo blepharoplasty?

Question:

I am 64 years old and I have glaucoma. Is it medically safe for me to undergo blepharoplasty? I would like both upper and lower lids corrected.

Answer:

Answer:
The short answer to this question is ‘yes if your glaucoma is stable’. I would like to have an opinion from your ophthalmologist stating it is safe for you to undergo blepharoplasty but someone who has glaucoma and has been medically treated and is stable can be a good candidate.
