Workup

Other Tests

See the list below:

  • A Schirmer tear test measures tearing function. This may be performed preoperatively to exclude dry eyes, which may be a contraindication to lower lid blepharoplasty.
  • Visual acuity test results should be documented before performing surgery in or around the eye.
