Correction of Ptosis – inability to open the eyes fully.
This is a condition where the patients are unable to open the eye fully. It can be one eye or both. They can be partial or complete. It can be congenital or acquired.
For those borned with congenital droopy upper eyelid, the corrections can also be done by strengthening the weak levator muscles. In patients who do not have any active lifting levator muscles we can perform a more complex surgery whereby we use the forehead muscles via a tendon transfer to lift up the eye that is ptotic.
In the older age group they can be due to ageing and the condition is called blepharoptosis. All these can be corrected surgically.
