Corrective eye surgery (ptosis correction)

  1. 1. Corrective Eye Surgery (Ptosis Correction)
  2. 2. What is Ptosis?  Ptosis Surgery or droopy eyelid, refers to the droopyness of the upper eyelid of one (unilateral ptosis) or both eyes (bilateral ptosis). The droop may be barely noticeable, or the eyelid can descend over the entire pupil. It can affect both children (congenital ptosis) and adults (acquired ptosis). The most common ptosis cause is related to aging (involutional ptosis).  It is often seen that people with a droopy eye raise their eyebrows unconsciously that results in horizontal forehead lines.
  3. 3. Procedure:  In adult patient with ptosis, the surgery is performed by levator advancement surgery where the muscle is moved forward without sacrificing any of it (in contrast to “levator muscle resection”). The goal of this surgery is to position the eyelid to the appropriate level.  During Corrective eye surgery, in order to achieve the desired height, symmetry and cosmetic appearance, the surgeon draws the eye 3-D structure of the face. The muscle and the position of the eyelid is observed with gravity and may be adjusted. The patient is comfortable while the muscle is being adjusted.  The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia. The surgery can take anywhere from one to two hours.
  4. 4. Benefits of Ptosis  Improved upper part of the visual field and quality of vision, where part of the eye was previously covered by the upper droopy eyelid and interfering with visual function.  Restoring the normal appearance of the eyelid.
