Dr. Cooney was really great and personable! He explained how lifestyle habits are affecting my eyes and talked through what I can do to prevent/improve my eyelid health. He also recommended an eyelid treatment that I never knew existed - after careful consideration, I think I would greatly benefit from it if I decide to do it
