Blepharoplasty is an operation to remove excess skin and fat from around the eyelids and to tighten the skin and soft tissue around the eyes.1 Patients can present for this procedure at all ages and for a number of reasons, some of which may not be appropriate. For this reason, it is important that optometrists have a clear and honest conversation with presenting patients and thoroughly evaluate whether a referral is necessary or whether an alternative approach should be taken.
