Ptosis

January 23, 2014

Ptosis is a drooping of the eyelid; it can be mild to severe and can easily affect the quality of life in affected patients.

In children, ptosis can contribute to more severe conditions like amblyopia (Lazy eye), which can limit visual capabilities. In adults, ptosis may be the result of Bell’s Palsy, brain injury, aging, drug use, injuries, or it may be present since birth; ptosis may also develop based on other medical conditions not listed above.

Treatment for ptosis may range based on its etiology (cause), the age of affected patient, and the severity of  the condition. If you are concerned about a presentation of ptosis, please contact our office to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.
