Ptosis meaning is droopy. Upper eyelid ptosis (or blepharoptosis) means drooping of the upper eyelids. Patients will lift or rather arch their eyebrows to try and fix their problem. The visual obstruction is relieved once the upper eyelid are lifted with ptosis surgery. Children that where ptosis is visibly noticed should be treated immediately.
A qualified oculoplastic surgeon like Dr. Joseph Lin can give you a consultation to diagnose your Ptosis.
