Ptosis Information

Ptosis is a condition in which the eyelid droops. It is caused by a weakness or separation of muscles deep within the eyelid. Ptosis does not involve excess skin or tissue in the eyelid (a condition called dermatochalasis). It is usually a result of aging, but some people develop ptosis after eye surgery or an injury. This procedure can be covered by medical insurance if it is visually significant. Dr. Nguyen can determine this by checking the peripheral visual field with an instrument called the Humphrey Visual Field (HVF) Analyzer. Patients who are also suffering from excess skin may choose to undergo blepharoplasty at the same time as ptosis repair. Please refer to Blepharoplasty for more information.
