Levator aponeurosis

A tendon-like sheath that attaches onto the levator palpebrae superioris muscle (levator muscle), and helps to attach the muscle onto the eyelid tarsus and skin, while helping to elevate the lid (lid excursion). If the levator aponeurosis is stretched either through age, trauma, or through repeated surgery, in can result in eyelid ptosis.
