How Upneeq Works
Upneeq is the first and only prescription eye drop FDA-approved for acquired blepharoptosis, also referred to as low-lying lids. Upneeq is composed of oxymetazoline, which works by causing a specific muscle in the eyelid to contract and thus visibly lifts the upper eyelids to open your eyes. Upneeq is ideal for individuals with acquired ptosis or age-related droopy eyelids. Upneeq is also ideal for anyone looking to improve their field of vision due to sagging eyelids and those looking to improve the cosmetic appearance of droopy or sagging upper eyelids—without resorting to cosmetic surgery.
How long does it take for Upneeq to work?
While some see Upneeq start to work in as little as 15 minutes, most people see eyelid lifting approximately 2 hours after administering Upneeq.
Can I wear my contacts with Upneeq?
Yes, but you must use Upneeq before putting your contacts in and wait 15 minutes before putting your contact lenses in.
How often should I use Upneeq?
Upneeq should only be used once daily.
Will Upneeq improve my vision?
Yes, Upneeq has been shown to improve the upper field of vision and helps patients with low-lying upper eyelids see more as soon as they start treatment.
Are my Upneeq results permanent?
No, Upneeq is a temporary corrective measure and lasts all day (12 hours).
Does Upneeq have any side effects?
Upneeq is safe but can have mild and temporary side effects, including dry eye, irritation, stinging, blurred vision, or tearing.
