Ptosis - The Basics

Ptosis is a condition when the upper eyelid drops. Ptosis can affect only one side, or can occur on both upper lids. There are degrees of severity from a mild drop, up to where the vision is completely blocked by the eyelid.

I am an Oculoplastic surgeon, and have an expertise in diagnosing and surgically correcting ptosis. I have a special interest in ptosis, and enjoy the process of meeting patients, discussing options for treatment, and providing them with excellent surgical results.

Ptosis repair is a short surgery that can be done under local anesthesia. In most patients, I approach the repair from the inside of the eyelid, so that there is no incision on the skin. All the work is hidden, and recovery is extremely quick.
