Ptosis (drooping eyelid)

The upper eyelid can gradually drop with age and gravity, eventually obscuring vision, in one or both upper lids. This may require the patient to continually raise their eyebrows or lift their chin in order to see clearly, which may result in headache and neck pain.

Eyelid ptosis is usually due to age-related stretching of the tendon of the muscle that elevates the upper eyelid, and can be corrected by surgical tightening of the muscle and tendon.
