I am an ophthalmologist and can help you with this issue. Does the eyelid seem swollen at all ? Do you know if an injection was done near the eyeball to anesthetize the eyeball for surgery ? is there any foreign body sensation ?
There is no swelling.. No injection near the eyeball that I am aware of, but the doctor said the antheologist had to give me double the amount because I could still feel what was going on. I have no pain or swelling now. Vision is good but I have to tilt my head back see as the lid covers the eye. Could I have been given too much anethesia? Can this be corrected without eye lid surgery?

I just got off of the internet and was able to print out this information as well after accessing drooping eyelids/blepharoplasty.
I would like to hear from the ophthalmologist, Dr. Stevens. I am anxious to know if this requires eyelid surgery. Did complications arise from too much anesthesia? If surgery is needed-where/how to find the best for this delicate procedure. How can I get Dr. Stevens or an opthmalog. with experience respond?

first you get the other eye done and see how the droopy lid turns out in a few weeks. Should you need ptosis repair, you are going to need to have your ophthalmologist refer you to an oculoplastics surgeon. That is the specialist who most commonly perform ptosis repair. Some ophthalmologists also perform this surgery but more often it is an oculoplastics specialist or even a plastic surgeon.

You are fortunate to live in a place like New York where oculoplastics specialists are plenty. Whatever group you belong to, they will have a specialist in the system and if they dont by law they have to provide a referral to a specialist to provide the services. As for finding a local specialist, you can look in the ASOPRS directory. http://www.asoprs.org/custom/directory/?pageid=3657&showTitle=1
