Treatment of Ptosis
Treatment depends on the type of ptosis.
- Aponeurotic and congenital ptosis may require surgical correction if severe or if cosmesis is a concern. Surgical procedures include:
- Levator resection
- Frontalis sling operation
Non-surgical modalities like the use of “crutch” glasses to support the eyelid may also be used.
Ptosis that is caused by a disease will improve if the disease is treated successfully.
