What is Eyelid Drooping Treatment?
Drooping eyelid, also known as ptosis, refers to drooping of the upper eyelid. The droop can descend over the pupil, blocking full vision and making the person looks sleepy. Ptosis can affect both children and adults, but it usually occurs because of aging.
The condition can also happen due to injury, problem with the levator muscles (muscles that lift the eyelid), aftereffect of cataract surgery or other corrective eye surgery. An eye tumor, neurological disorder or systemic disease like diabetes are other causes of drooping eyelids. For those with minimal to moderate ptosis and thin upper eyelid, non-incisional drooping eyelid treatment is recommended.

1. Eyelid condition will be examined.
2. Anesthesia will be administered.
3. Thread will be inserted from the back of eyelid.
