Eyelid ptosis treatment options
What causes eyelid ptosis?
When you look in the mirror, do you see sleepy-looking eyes? Maybe your upper eyelids sag a little or cover your pupil.
This is a clear sign of eyelid ptosis, which is when the upper eyelid droops over the eye, limiting or even completely blocking your otherwise normal vision.
Ptosis can be present at birth, but people can also acquire it later in life due to:
Injury or stretching of eyelid muscles or ligaments
Damage to the nerve controlling the eyelid muscles
A complication of Botox injections
Following eye surgery, which can stretch your eyelid
Excessive eye rubbing
Use of rigid contact lenses
You could get ptosis as an adult when the nerves that control your eyelid muscles are damaged.
In most cases, the condition is resolved through medical intervention.
Ptosis does not lead to any health issues, in most cases, and is easily manageable.
