Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty - eyelid surgery - is a cosmetic operation that tightens the skin and muscles surrounding your eyes, giving you back your doe-like, youthful gaze.

Since I have glaucoma is there a noninvasive procedure I can have done in place of a blepharoplasty?

For the upper lids, surgery is really the only good option. Laser ablation is an excellent choice if you are only concerned with wrinkles. Either way, your glaucoma should not interfere, though I would still recommend seeking approval from your glaucoma physician before proceeding.
