Also called "drooping eyelid," ptosis occurs when the muscle responsible for raising the eyelid is no longer strong enough to do so. This can cause difficulty in seeing, especially with severe eyelid drooping. The condition, which generally appears in old age but can also result from diabetes, brain tumor, stroke, or accident, can affect one or both eyelids and worsen or improve over time. The condition may also be hereditary and can be present at birth (congenital ptosis).
Treatment of Ptosis – Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is the most effective treatment for drooping eyelids. A surgeon can tighten the muscles in the eyelids to help improve vision and appearance. The surgeon can also remove parts of the sagging eyelid to make it less droopy. To learn more about treating ptosis through eyelid surgery, contact our practice today.
