Ptosis is a drooping of the upper eyelids due to a weakened or stretched eyelid muscle. It occurs when the eyelid falls and covers the pupil and blocks the upper portion of your vision. Common symptoms are eye fatigue due to having to raise the eyebrows and forehead to see. Ptosis may worsen when you are looking down in the reading position.
In most adults, ptosis occurs as a result of age-related changes. The muscle which opens the eyelid becomes weakened and stretches away from its attachment in the eyelid.
It is commonly seen in the elderly, after previous eye surgical procedures, or in a long time contact lens wearers.
Oftentimes, there is an excess of upper eyelid skin which Dr. Felder can correct at the same time as the ptosis surgical procedure.
To surgically correct the ptosis or weak muscle, Dr. Felder can surgically reattach the muscle tendon or muscle to its proper position. It is performed in our in-office operating suite under IV Sedation or under local anesthesia.
The goal of ptosis surgery is to raise the eyelid above the pupil and restore symmetry to the eyelids. Dr. Felder routinely performs ptosis surgery in the same as cosmetic eyelid surgery.
The overall cost of an Ptosis Surgery is affected by anesthesia fees, hospital fees, post-surgery garments, and medications. Price is also impacted by medical tests, surgeon’s fees, and the exact techniques employed.
