Drooping Eyelids

Drooping upper eyelids, known as ptosis, can occur at birth, or more commonly in adulthood. Newborns with ptosis usually have underdevelopment of the muscle that lifts the upper eyelid, while adult ptosis has a variety of causes. The most common cause is age-induced stretching of the muscle that lifts the upper eyelid, but injury, muscle diseases, or nerve diseases of the muscle or upper eyelid are also potential causes of ptosis.

Besides being a cosmetic problem, drooping upper eyelids can block upward vision and, if the eyelids are low enough, even central vision. In the case of nerve problems that result in drooping upper eyelids, ptosis can be a sign of a more serious neurologic problem. In infants, drooping upper eyelids can cause amblyopia (poor visual development) by blocking central vision or causing astigmatism which distorts the vision.

Symptoms You May Experience:
If your upper eyelids droop, you may notice that your eyelids block your vision when you look upward or even straight ahead. You may have trouble reading, because your eyelids may droop even more when you are looking down at a book. You may notice forehead tension headaches if you lift your eyebrows with your forehead muscles to help raise your upper eyelids. If your ptosis has a neurologic cause, one upper eye lid may droop more than the other, the droopiness may fluctuate (often becoming worse later in the day), or you may experience double vision...
