Are low-lying eyelids making your eyes look a little tired? You may have acquired ptosis—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 upper eyelid to droop
- May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. It could also be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
Upneeq is the only FDA-approved once-daily prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes. 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, and 74% 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.
How to use: Apply Upneeq to your affected eye(s) in 2 easy steps
- Cut open foil wrapper and remove single-use vial
- Apply one drop of Upneeq in each affected eye as directed, once a day
Do not let the tip of the vial touch your eye or any other surface. Vials should not be re-used after opening and should be thrown away after applying drop(s). If you wear contact lenses, remove them before applying Upneeq eyedrops. You may put them back in 15 minutes after applying Upneeq. If more than one topical ophthalmic drug is being used, the drugs should be administered at least 15 minutes between applications.
