UpNeeq® Treatment Before & After

UpNeeq Helps Lifts the Eyelids, Improving Vision & Symmetry

UpNeeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eye drop proven to lift the upper eyelids. If you have low-lying lids, also known as acquired ptosis, you may be a candidate for treatment. During your visit, our providers will assess your eyelids and recommend the most appropriate course of action.

Did you know that millions of people over the age of 40 have acquired ptosis? Low-Lying Lids, also known as acquired ptosis, result in heavy, droopy eyelids that can make you look sleepy and even lead to vision impairment.

UpNeeq is a once-daily eyedrop that helps to correct acquired ptosis by lifting the upper eyelid, resulting in a significant improvement in the patient’s field of vision. While treatment can help improve asymmetry of the eyes, it can also help prevent eye strain, neck pain and headaches that occur from impaired vision.

Real life patient stories

“I was excited to try these drops since I have had 1 eyelid that has always been lower than the other, making me look like I had a smaller eye. Within 15 minutes of using the drops, my lid lifted. I was able to see better, but more importantly my eyes were much more symmetrical which really boosted my confidence.”
