Mayor Menino to Undergo Surgery to Fix Droopy Eyelids


Mayor Thomas M. Menino is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday to repair drooping eyelids, a medical condition that has slowly obscured his vision over the past decade and is most likely a consequence of age… “I tell my patients not to have this done before the prom, because they are going to be black and blue,” said Dr. George B. Bartley, an ophthalmologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., who did not have specific knowledge of Menino’s case but performs similar surgeries. “Their best friend is an ice mask for the first few days.”
