Ptosis

Ptosis is the medical term for droopy eyelids. Drooping of the upper eyelid(s) can cause a reduction in the field of vision when the eyelid obstructs the visual axis. Children can be born with ptosis, while adults develop ptosis as a result of aging, prior surgery, or long term contact lens use. There are various methods of correcting ptosis depending on the type, degree and severity of ptosis. Recovery from ptosis surgery is usually quite rapid, and patients find themselves returning back to work within a few days.

When drooping of the upper eyelid(s) is noticeable but not causing a reduction in the field of vision, aesthetic surgery can be performed to elevate the lids to a more desirable height or create better symmetry between the sides. Recovery from ptosis surgery is usually quite rapid, and patients find themselves returning back to work within a few days.
