Ptosis describes the phenomenon of drooping of one or both upper eyelids. In case of severe ptosis the vision may be affected as well. Ptosis may be congenital, that is being present at birth or may be acquired, occurring at some point in life. Congenital ptosis is attributed to an abnormality of the muscle which lifts the eyelid, while an acquired ptosis has many causes and factors such as: Advancing age, a neurological disease, or a muscle disease. Treatment depends on the cause of ptosis, with medical prescription drugs being a therapeutic medium for the improvement of the symptoms of the disease. In the case of congenital ptosis, surgery is a treatment option that should be considered.
