Laboratory Studies

Laboratory testing should be guided by the type of anesthetic used, the age of the patient, and the medical history.


Other Tests

See the list below:

  • Visual acuity testing is mandatory prior to blepharoplasty because of the rare possibility of blindness, which can occur with any blepharoplasty technique.

  • Tearing adequacy can be confirmed with a Schirmer tear test, but its value is debatable.
