The appearance of the eye area is prone to change as we age, often resulting in a drooping, tired, or sad expression. Eyelid ptosis refers to a drooping eyelid. This condition can be caused by excess skin and the weight of which leads to sagging, or when the eyebrow and forehead descend and push the eyelid down.
Drooping eyelids & brows are often an aesthetic concern that develops as a person ages. However, if the skin on the eyelid falls too far over the eyelid margin it can impact on a person’s vision.
Drooping eyelids & brows can affect one or both eyes. It is considered to be a fallen, or ptotic, eyelid when the lower edge starts to cover the coloured part of the eye. This concern is a common result of weakening of the levator muscles – the muscles that open the eye.
