Ptosis Repair

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.
