eye lift
I have lazy eyes, when i was 3 years old , I had an opp where they inserted a type of elastic band into my eye lid. My left eye is hanging and I cant open it properly, I would really like to have it fixed. I would just like to know if medical aids cover such opp'sor if it is seen as cosmetics.
