For patients who are scared of eyelid surgery or want a less invasive option to address droopy eyelids, UPNEEQ® eye drops may be a great alternative. 

What Are UPNEEQ® Eye Drops?

UPNEEQ® (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution) eye drops are a prescription medication that temporarily treats mild, moderate, and severe droopy eyelids (ptosis). This FDA-approved treatment involves applying one dose daily to achieve a 1 mm of lift in their drooping upper eyelids. It works by contracting eyelid muscles and lifting the upper eyelids.  

Where Can I Purchase UPNEEQ® Eye Drops?

Patients must first consult a doctor before buying UPNEEQ® eye drops. Visit Dr. Schalit to request a prescription for UPNEEQ® eye drops. 

All UPNEEQ® eye drops are exclusively available at RVL Pharmacy. Have your provider send your prescription to the staff at RVL Pharmacy. They will contact you, process your prescription, collect your payment, answer any questions you may have, and ship your UPNEEQ® eye drops to your home within a few days. 

What Are the Side Effects of UPNEEQ® Eye Drops?

Common side effects of UPNEEQ® eye drops include eye redness, dryness, inflammation, irritation, blurred vision, headache, and pain at the time of use. 

During your consultation, Dr. Schalit and his team will go over all the potential side effects to ensure you are well-informed before receiving this treatment. 

How Long Do UPNEEQ® Eye Drops Last?

Although UPNEEQ® eye drops may be a great non-surgical alternative, they are not as long-lasting as eyelid surgery. You may notice improvements in just a few minutes, but it may take around two hours to see full results. Patients should apply one drop of UPNEEQ® eyedrops on each affected eye once a day for a lasting effect of up to six hours

Who is a Candidate for UPNEEQ® Eye Drops?

Patients who want a more refreshed and alert appearance may benefit from UPNEEQ® eye drops. UPNEEQ® eye drops are the perfect treatment for patients who want to lift their drooping eyelids without incisions, scars, or downtime. 

However, candidates should keep in mind that UPNEEQ® eye drops may not provide dramatic improvements like blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) can achieve. Patients using beta-blockers or blood pressure medications may not be good candidates for this eyelid treatment. Patients with more severe droopy eyelids may benefit more from eyelid surgery. 

If UPNEEQ® eye drops interest you, contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Schalit, who is board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He will examine your eyes, review your medical history, and determine if UPNEEQ® eye drops are the best treatment for your droopy eyelids.
