Maintaining the health and safety of our patients, employees, and community is our top priority.  


To ensure social distancing to the best of our ability, we must limit the number of people in the office. We are asking patients to bring only one family member/friend with them during their visit. They must remain with you through out your exam. At this time we are not allowing visitors to wait in the reception area.

Patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Follow social distancing policies.
  • Have had no symptoms or exposure in the last 14 days.
  • Temperature of less than 100.0F.

 Mask Policy:

  • Patients and approved visitors must wear a mask. Masks are still required in all healthcare facilities.
  • Masks must fully cover the nose and mouth.

Blepharoplasty for Eyelid Health

Do your eyelids droop? Is your vision obscured by your eyelids? If so, you may want to consider blepharoplasty, a form of surgery that reduces the size of your eyelids. Kunesh Eye Center in Dayton provides treatment for many people who require oculoplastic surgery, LAD repair, or another treatment for ptosis. Dr. John Kunesh is an oculoplastic physician and can help you.

Eyelid Surgery

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a form of eye surgery that removes excess skin from your eyelid. People who have been diagnosed with ptosis, drooping of the eyelids, benefit from having their eyelids trimmed for medical purposes, including better functioning of the eye.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

You may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery if you notice that your eyelids are puffy or uncomfortable. They might be interfering with your ability to see properly, or maybe the eyelashes frequently block your peripheral vision. If you think you are a good candidate for surgery, speak with an ophthalmologist to see if you are a good candidate.

What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery offers several benefits. Eyelid surgery can improve your vision by removing excess skin from your upper and lower eyelids. Surgery gives you back your peripheral vision and decreases the appearance of bags under your eyes. Surgery can also make your eyes look younger and bigger.

Does Eyelid Surgery Have Risks?

There are some risks associated with eye surgery. Some people experience bleeding or infection at the site of surgery, while others experience blurry vision for a short period of time. Some people experience decreased function of the eyelids, and others feel temporary irritation as the eyes heal.

What Happens during the First Surgery Appointment?

Before you get eyelid surgery, you will come in for a consultation. Blepharoplasty requires a close examination of your eyes and eyelids. You will come back for a second appointment, if surgery is scheduled, for photos and testing so we can obtain authorization from your insurance company.

Your next appointment will be at our outpatient surgical center. You will be given medication that helps you relax, and the doctor will make a cut near the top of your eyelid. Excess skin will be removed, and the doctor will stitch up your eyelid.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • Highly recommend this practice! I was in town visiting family and had an issue with my eye that worried me and needed to be checked.but couldn’t get in with another physician until later, and their reviews weren’t as high. I phoned Kunesh and was greeted by Julie, super pleasant on the phone and when I described my issue, she was very prompt in getting me an appointment. From the moment I arrived the staff was all busy working and multitasking. While I was filling out paperwork Elaine took

  • If and when you have a retina tear, this is the place to go. I was seen on a Saturday and was the only patient. If you live long enough and are near sighted and see Northern lights inside call. You will be seen. Normally this is not a problem, but only an ophthalmologist can tell. To avoid the long wait take the earliest appointment offered. If not, it is definitely worth the wait. The optometrist is great, too, but must be requested. Their attention to detail is amazing! You will have drops, s
