The Eye Center is proud to offer Upneeq, the only FDA-approved prescription eye drop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes.

Acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common medical condition that:

  • Can develop later in life
  • Affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age
  • Usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the lid to droop
  • May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. It could be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
What can Upneeq do for you?

Lifts eyelid(s) quickly.
  • Most patients in clinical trials had a lift in their eyelids in as little as 2 hours
    • 84% of patients had some form of improvement
    • 74% of patients had more than a 50% improvement
  • In one study, some patients saw a lift in their eyelids as fast as 5 minutes after the first dose
Significantly improves upper field of vision.
  • In clinical trials, Upneeq helped patients with acquired ptosis see more—on the first day of treatment!
