All 3 anesthesia approaches are effective in blepharoptosis correction.

The precedex approach can be the first choice if the patients can cooperate, because the patients feel more comfortable and they can be woken during surgery to confirm the correction effects, also it can reduce the dosage of lidocaine epinephrine, which can make the eyes more symmetrical.

The study also shows that the precedex approach may create a better CEA and MRD1 results, but it requires further research.
