Selecting a doctor for eye surgery these days is, well, pretty scary. Sure, you can go on line and research, but is everything you read on the internet true? My journey to Doctor Mark Baskin’s door was actually pretty simple. I received a recommendation to his office from another Doctor whom I’d been seeing for years. He told me my sagging eyelids were due to age related ptosis (a sagging of the muscles holding the upper eyelid open). My complaint was I just couldn’t see well at all, my vision was blurry and night time driving was difficult. Simple cosmetic surgery would not fix the problem and Dr. Baskin was, in his opinion, the best in the business. I was a bit nervous during my first appointment with Mark Baskin. He thoroughly explained the surgery and recovery time. He told me my droopy eyelids were actually changing the refraction of light into my eyes causing poor, blurry vision. Eureka! I asked him if it made sense to remove the bags under my eyes and tighten up the upper lids during the same procedure. This process was also explained and I left his office with a date for surgery scheduled to minimize down time with a weekend to recover. After the procedure, which was painless I might add, I spent about three days recovering at home. The healing process went well and I was back to normal activities in about a weeks’ time. Dr. Baskin followed up with several appointments to check my progress and to insure my vision was the best it could be. I am extremely satisfied with the surgery. My vision is greatly improved and my friends have told me I look much more rested and not as tired-looking as I did before. My wife remarked she can finally see my blue eyes which had been hidden behind droopy lids for many years. Thank you, Dr. Baskin, for giving me the confidence to look in the mirror again!
