Take a look in the mirror. What do you see?

Acquired ptosis or “low lying lids” usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the lid to droop.  It affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age.  It may also be caused by other issues such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition.

In addition to affecting your appearance, low-lying eyelids can also impact your eyesight by reducing your field of vision.  Low-lying eyelids may lead to issues with reading, driving, and computer use.  They can make you look tired, cause the appearance of asymmetrical eyes, or other cosmetic concerns.

Imagine an EYE-OPENING Lift with just a daily eyedrop!

Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes.
