What is Ptosis?

Ptosis (pronounced “toe-sis”) is the term used to describe a drooping of the upper eyelid or droopy eyelids. This drooping or lowering can give you an obstructed field of vision and change your appearance. People suffering from this condition have trouble keeping their eyelids open and to compensate, will often arch their eyebrows in an effort raise their drooping eyelids. Overtime this can contribute to premature or increased forehead lines and wrinkles besides the “lazy eye” or sleepy look that ptosis causes.

Ptosis can be congenital, occurring in children. Children that have ptosis can develop a stigmatism due to the pressure exerted on the eye from the drooping eyelid and require treatment as soon as possible to prevent vision conditions worsening as the child develops.

What Causes Drooping Eyelids or Ptosis?

The muscle that lifts the eyelid is called the levator muscle, when this becomes weak or is underdeveloped, ptosis can result. Eye ptosis usually occurs over time, as we age, but there are also other factors that can contribute to the condition such as:

  • Contact lens wear
  • Head injury
  • Diabetes
  • A tumor
  • Complications from corrective eye surgery or cataract surgery
  • Neurological conditions such as Horner’s syndrome and nerve palsy
