Are Your Eyelids Drooping? Ptosis Surgery May Help
What Is Ptosis?
Why Is Ptosis a Problem?
Does Ptosis Surgery Help?
In many cases, ptosis can be corrected with surgery by an oculofacial plastic surgeon. During the surgery, the slipped muscle is tightened.
The goal of ptosis surgery is to raise the eyelid to allow a full field of vision and to achieve symmetry with the opposite upper eyelid. Many insurance providers cover this surgery, and your doctor at Rock Hill Eye Center will evaluate whether you are likely to qualify.
