Knox Dermatology also offers UPNEEQ®, a prescription eye drop used to treat low-lying lids, or acquired ptosis. Acquired ptosis is a common condition that affects adults of all ages and occurs more often with increased age. It can be caused by the muscles in the eyelid stretching and weakening, causing the lid to droop, and may be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. Low-lying lids can also impact your eyesight by reducing your field of vision and may lead to issues with reading, driving, computer use, looking tired, asymmetrical eyes, and cosmetic concerns.
Taking care of your skin is vital to overall health. The skin is the biggest organ and has very specific functions like regulating body temperature and keeping other internal organs protected from bacteria. George Wooming, MD, the best dermatologist Dallas has to offer, provides a list of skin care products at his Knox Dermatology office that can be part of a daily hygiene routine.
Moisturizers are one of the most common products recommended because they help maintain the natural level of moisture in the skin. If your skin is dry, you may have a higher risk of developing skin diseases.
