How much does eyelid surgery cost? Does insurance cover the cost of blepharoplasty?

The cost of eyelid surgery depends on the type and complexity of the procedure performed.

Insurance carriers will only cover the cost of upper eyelid surgery if the patient has obstruction of their visual field. This must be documented during an examination with formal visual field testing and photographs. Some insurance carriers require submission of the visual fields and photographs before approving the blepharoplasty as a medically indicated procedure.
