General Info About Ptosis
It can affect one or both eyes.
Ptosis is caused by weakness of the muscles responsible for raising the eyelid, damage to the nerves that control the eye muscles, or looseness of the skin of the upper eyelids.
Types of ptosis
- Congenital ptosis- Present since birth
- Acquired ptosis- Occurs after birth and is due to secondary conditions like tumors, injury or old age.
Ptosis does not usually improve with time, and nearly always requires corrective surgery and if left untreated, can permanently damage vision by forcing the unaffected eye to do all the work while letting the affected eye degenerate.
