Ptosis Treatment – Upneeq Eyedrops

dry eye ThumbnailAcquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common medical condition that:

-Can develop later in life

-Affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age

-Usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the upper eyelid to droop

-May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. It could also be a sign of a more serious medical condition.

We offer our patients in Atlanta and the surrounding areas the Upneeq treatment. Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes.

Dr. Rad Patel 1989-2023


It’s with a heavy heart that we share the passing of Northlake Eyecare Associates, Dr. Rad Patel at the young age of 33. His shining personality and humor brought happiness to everyone he encountered.

Dr. Patel graduated from the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico School of Optometry in 2018. He completed an externship at OMNI Eyecare Services and was chosen as a resident in Ocular Disease. He completed his residency with a diploma from UAB in 2019. He then joined the established optometry practice of Dr. Steven R. Warstadt & Associates in Atlanta. In 2021, Dr. Patel became the sole owner, and the practice became known as Northlake Eyecare Associates.

With regret, Dr. Patel passed away on Friday, May 12, 2023. He was taken too soon, and we will miss him deeply. Northlake Eyecare Associates is still operating for all patients.
