Ptosis

Surgery..eligible if field defect

If you have listed or are planning to list a Blepharoplasty or Ptosis please do a Binocular Esterman- lids not taped.

In the rare cases where the patient wont be able to manage a visual field please try to take photos of lids that can be copied into the notes, and make a note on the notes & authorisation form that the lids are significantly obstructing vision. Otherwise they won't get authorisation.

NB Brow lifts are very difficult to get authorisation for, its easier to apply for ptosis, or upper lid entropion.
