Ptosis is a condition in which your upper eyelid droops, sags or falls over your eye. It usually happens because your levator muscle — the muscle that lifts your eyelid — doesn’t work as it should. The condition can limit your vision or block it completely, depending on how much your lid droops. Ptosis of the eyelid can affect one or both upper eyelids. It can also be worse in one eye than the other. Other names for the condition include blepharoptosis, upper eyelid ptosis or droopy eyelid.

Treatment of Ptosis

Ptosis treatment usually depends on how well your eyelid muscles are functioning. If the condition doesn’t affect your vision and the appearance doesn’t bother you, you might not need treatment at all.

If ptosis causes a problem with vision, appearance or both, your eye care specialist may recommend treatment. The type of treatment depends on whether the ptosis is caused by a disease or by aging. Treating ptosis caused by aging usually involves surgery.

Ptosis surgery is performed under  local anesthesia with sedation (you’re awake but you don’t feel the procedure). The types of surgery to repair the droopy lid include the following:

Your surgeon makes an opening in the skin of your upper eyelid. This allows the surgeon to find the small muscle that raises your eyelid. The surgeon places stitches to tighten this muscle and raise your eyelid. The incision in the skin of your eyelid is then closed with more stitches.

The surgeon can perform the entire surgery from underneath your eyelid. In this case, your surgeon flips your eyelid and tightens the muscle from underneath. No skin incision is required for this approach.

After surgery, your surgeon will explain how to take care of your eye. It’s important to come back to your provider after surgery so they can check your results. Appointments are usually scheduled for several days to one week after surgery.
