We are excited to announce that Upneeq, the first and only FDA-approved prescription eye drop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids), is now available at our practice in San Francisco. Upneeq provides a non-surgical solution to lift your eyelids, offering a brighter, more youthful appearance and improving your field of vision.

What is Upneeq?

Upneeq (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) 0.1% is designed to treat acquired ptosis, which can occur due to aging, eye surgery, or underlying medical conditions. By lifting the eyelids, Upneeq helps enhance vision and provides a more open look.

How Does Upneeq Work?

Upneeq stimulates the muscles in the eyelid, causing them to contract and lift the eyelid. This effect can be seen within hours of application, providing immediate improvement in both appearance and function.
