At Florida Eye Specialists and Cataract Institute, our highly-trained and experienced physicians regularly perform eyelid surgery to correct Ptosis and improve vision.
Ptosis is the drooping of the upper eyelid, as a result of aging, a congenital defect, muscle deformity or neurological disorder.
The eyelid may droop slightly, or it may cover the entire pupil. In some cases, it can restrict and even block normal vision. Ptosis can affect one or both eyelids. It can be inherited, present at birth or occur later in life. Severe drooping can obstruct your vision as the eyelid gradually droops lower and lower, eventually covering the eye.
