If you find that your upper eyelid is drooping, you may have ptosis. This causes a tired, sleepy look and reduces your vision, and comes about by the gradual stretching of the upper lid supporting tissue. It is part of the aging process, yet it can be repaired to leave you looking younger and more vibrant, while also improving your sight.
It is when the upper eyelid droops, which may, or may not, be noticeable. In some cases, the eyelid will cover the pupil, leaving vision seriously impaired. It is basically down to a defect in the levator muscle and is usually associated with the detachment or thinning muscle tendon. Some people will feel the eyelid become increasingly heavy, which may, in turn, impair their vision. Many will start to tilt their head, in order to see better, which could cause headaches, due to eyestrain.
To repair ptosis, it takes a minor surgical procedure, that tightens the muscle that lifts your eyelid. This is carried out either through the eyelid skin or from inside. Incisions are typically done inside and there are no visible marks post-surgery, once you are fully healed. After surgery, your eyelid will be slightly swollen and your vision blurry, but this will disappear shortly. If you wear contact lenses, you can return to them as soon as you feel comfortable, with most people using them again within three weeks.
