Drooping eyelids caused by ptosis can be addressed with an outpatient procedure. In most cases, a procedure can be performed to strengthen or tighten the muscles around the eye allowing the eyelids to open more fully, and function naturally. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove excess skin from the upper eyelid. Each of these treatments is meant to help restore the eyelid’s normal healthy appearance.
The best treatment option depends on many factors, which can be determined by an eye surgeon.
