Droopy Eyelids? Aging, Not Boredom, Is The Culprit

dropping eyelidIf you’ve got a drooping upper eyelid on one or both eyes, you may have a condition known as Ptosis. It comes in varying degrees and usually turns up as we get older. It’s caused not by a lack of rest or other behavioral factor, but by muscles called levators, which lift the eyelid. When your levators don’t work, for whatever reason, your eyelids droop.

What’s to be done? You might want to consider blepharoplasty, a cosmetic procedure that can improve your eyelids’ appearance and lessen the droop.

Of course, you should first see your ophthalmologist and have an exam done to make sure that there’s nothing else going on with your vision. Once everything else has been checked out, he or she can work with you to get those eyes open wide once again. Contact us now for more information or to set up an appointment.
