Family pics showed my droopy dropping right eyelid. Ugh! My eye doctor referred me to Dr. Epstein, who examined my eyes thoroughly and confirmed the need for ptosis. He did the procedure carefully and efficiently....so Now! you can take my picture! Very happy...

From my initial consultation through my final post-op appointment I was treated courteously and professionally by the physician and all members of the staff. All of my questions were answered and my result was terrific. I highly recommend Dr Epstein and FLEI for your eye needs.

Dr. Epstein is truly a master in oculoplastic surgery. He also treats other conditions of the eye and is caring, knowledgeable and innovative. His work is superior and Fort Lauderdale is blessed to have a doctor with his ability. He is one of the best!
