There is a treatment option that may be of interest to you if you are experiencing drooping eyelids. The treatment is called Upneeq, which is a prescription eye drop medication that can effectively treat acquired blepharoptosis, the condition that causes drooping eyelids.
Upneeq is a prescription eye drop medication used to treat a condition called acquired blepharoptosis, or drooping eyelids. Acquired blepharoptosis is a condition in which the upper eyelid droops due to weakness or paralysis of the muscles that control eye movement.
Upneeq contains the active ingredient oxymetazoline hydrochloride, which is a vasoconstrictor. When applied to the eye, it constricts the blood vessels in the eyelid, causing the muscle to contract and the eyelid to lift. The effect of Upneeq lasts for several hours.
Upneeq is applied topically to the eye and should only be used under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional. It is important to follow the dosing instructions carefully to avoid potential side effects, such as eye redness, eye irritation, or headache. Upneeq is not recommended for individuals with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain medications, so it is important to discuss any medical history or medication use with a healthcare provider before using Upneeq.
