Ptosis is the drooping of the upper eyelid affecting both adults and children. The unusually low position of the eyelid may cause a disturbance in the visual field.
Ptosis maybe hereditary, congenital, due to trauma, neurological or age related changes to the levator muscle. The levator muscle is the main muscle involved in eyelid elevation.
Ptosis can be surgically corrected.
