I understand insurance companies will sometimes pay for a blepharoplasty. Under what circumstances will they cover this surgery?

It is unusual for an insurance company to pay for blepharoplasty surgery.  However, if the procedure is necessary for normal vision, it may be covered.  For example, if there is sufficient amount of upper eyelid skin which hangs over the eyelid margin and obstructs vision, there is a chance for insurance coverage.  On the other hand, lower eyelid blepharoplasty surgery is always considered cosmetic, since excess skin there does not obstruct vsion.
