If yes, then you may have Ptosis, an abnormally low position of the upper eyelid -
This is also called blepharoptosis. The disease, although it doesn't look too bothersome, it can
really cause you some serious problems. You may need an Eyelid Ptosis Surgery, in order for the
disease to not become more serious and cause some other problems, both functional such as tiredness,
headaches & vision loss as well as cosmetic, impacting your looks
The Eyelid Ptosis surgery is a treatment for Ptosis or droopy eyelids as they are usually called. While we must say that
this eyelid surgery is used to improve your health and to not let other serious diseases appear, while giving you
a clearer vision of the world and less headaches, the surgery also has a cosmetic aspect, as it will generally improve
your looks. Everyone looks at your eyelids, even a one mm difference in the heights of both eyelids can mar your looks.
Your eyes will no longer feel tired, therefore you, yourself, will not appear tired any longer. Your look will be
fresh and full of energy, and your face will also considerably brighten up.
The basic surgery is determined by whether the eyelid raising LPS muscle (levator palpebrae superioris muscle)
is strong or very weak. If the muscle is relatively strong, The surgery generally consists of operating on
the muscle that elevates your eyelid, & making it stronger and thereby able to work better, that is elevating
your eyelid higher (LPS eyelid surgery). In other cases, where the eyelid raising muscle is very weak,
the eyelid muscle itself may not be able to elevate the eyelid & in such cases, the forehead muscle needs
to be connected to the eylid muscle, to raise it (Tarso-Frontal Sling Surgery). The sling material used to
connect the forehead and the eylid muscle may be natural (Tensor Fascia lata sling) por artificial
(silicone rod or Goretox or suture sling material). The eyelid surgeon, however tests you and discovers
the exact problem and suggests to you the best surgery to treat it.
The recovery after this surgery is reasonably simple. While brusing, redness & watering may persist for a week,
fact is most people are able to see well enough to use the computer or see the TV the very next day.
There will usually be no scars left after the surgery.
There are also special Scleral contact lenses or "crutch" glasses that support the eyelid
better, but they're not too successful, and in time, the disease might increase.
It's better to treat ptosis early.
