Ptosis

A droopy upper eyelid, secondary to a weakened levator muscle. It can be acquired (aging, trauma, intraocular surgery, various medical disorders) or congenital and seen at birth. Ptosis can occur in one eye (unilateral ptosis) or both eyes (bilateral ptosis). When severe enough, ptosis can affect vision. Ptosis surgery can help improve the eyelid position.
