Treatment is relatively fast and straightforward and can be improved by an oculoplastic surgeon specialising in ptosis repair – an operation to correct drooping of the eyelid and restore eyelid appearance.
- Ptosis Repair is a surgical procedure that aims to restore normal lid position. This is sometimes performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty.
- Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove or reposition the excess skin for either functional, visual or cosmetic reasons.
- Brow surgery may also be recommended, although this is far less common.
Children with ptosis also require consideration of vision development and may necessitate patching therapy or more than one surgical procedure to achieve the best outcome.
