DROOPY EYELID REPAIR
Many factors can lead to droopy eyelids, commonly called ptosis. The most prevalent form of droopy eyelids is seen in those in their retirement years and can be due to an excess of skin called dermatochalasis or ineffective muscles lifting up the eyelid. When excess upper eyelid skin hangs over the eyelashes, it can impair vision, which can be exacerbated if the eyelid muscle cannot lift up the eyelid to an appropriate height. Patients will often report challenges driving their car or with simple hobbies such as reading a book due to peripheral vision loss.
