Ptosis (Droopy Eyelids)

View Video

Ptosis (Droopy Eyelids) can interfere with vision if it is severe enough to block the vision in the eye. Ptosis refers to a situation in which the eyelids are not as open as they should be. This situation is caused by a weakness of a muscle that opens the upper eyelid.

When Ptosis is mild, it is just a cosmetic problem. In infancy, it is important that Ptosis be eliminated so that vision will develop normally. Correction of Ptosis usually requires surgery on the eyelid(s).
