Ptosis is an eyelid condition that can be identified when the upper eyelid droops over the eye. When infected with this eyelid condition, the eyelid may droop just like a little or much so that it can cover the pupil. Ptosis can limit or completely block normal vision.

Treatment: If this eyelid condition does not affect your eye vision then it may be possible that your doctor will decide not to treat. If it affects then treating ptosis with surgery is the only option left. When your eyelids will be treated with surgery then doctors will just remove extra skin and tuck then muscles that lift the eyelid.
