LASIK & Cataract Surgeons serving Gurnee, River Forest & Chicago


Drooping eyelids (blepharoptosis) can produce a sleepy, disinterested, and lazy appearance. Impacting one or both eyes, this condition obscures vision by partially lidding the pupil, which is problem enough in itself, but in compensation, many people tilt their heads to look off the bridge of their noses or arch an eyebrow in an attempt to lift the eyelid. Both of these things can lead to tension headaches.

Patients elect to have eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, for medical reasons, cosmetic reasons, or a combination of the two. Eyelid surgery ranks among the top five most common cosmetic surgeries and may involve the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both.

The eye surgeons at Kirk Eye Center have the experience and knowledge to deliver natural-looking results with eyelid surgery. Our surgeons have a thorough understanding of how the eye works and know how to optimize and protect your vision when performing this surgery.

Here at Kirk Eye Center, in addition to helping you see your best, we also help you look your best. We offer BOTOX™ Cosmetic, an incredibly effective injectable treatment that smooths lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the corners of the eyes.

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. If your eyes are vibrant and youthful, it can brighten your entire face. Unfortunately, the eye area is one of the first to show signs of aging. Drooping eyelids and puffy eye bags can make you look tired, worn-down, and older than you actually feel.
