Ptosis

Introduction

Ptosis is a medical condition where drooping of the eyelid occurs due to the weak eyelid elevating muscle function. This disorder can affect one eye or both. Ideally, the lid position is ideal when 80 to 90% of the color aspect of the eye (i.e., iris) is visible. In most cases, patient showing anything less percentage of iris is considered to have ptosis. Some physical problems associated with this disorder are headaches due to eye and brow strain, inability to read for prolonged period of time, as well as forehead wrinkles.
