Ptosis surgery (drooping eyelid)

Ptosis is the name given to the upper eyelid deformity in which the eyelid as a whole is too low. This congenital or age-related malposition makes it impossible to lift the eyelid sufficiently. Because the pupil is partially or completely covered by the upper eyelid, visual field perception and vision are correspondingly impaired. The drooping eyelid is corrected by folding or shortening the eyelid lifting muscle.
