Ptosis (drooping eyelids)
Drooping eyelids in one or both eyes? The droop may be barely noticeable, but, in some cases the lid can descend over the pupil. The condition, known as Ptosis happens in both children and adults, is usually congenital in children and most often a result of ageing or injury in adults.
Surgery is a lasting and effective treatment for drooping eyelids. The levator muscles that lift the eyelids are tightened, giving you both improved vision and appearance. In very severe cases, where levator muscles are weakened, the eyelid is attached under the eyebrow to the forehead, lifting muscles to lift the eyelids.
