What causes eyelids to droop?

Perhaps you, or someone you know, have visible drooping of one or both upper eyelids that causes the eye to appear partially closed because the eye's levator muscle can't open wide enough to fully expose the iris (the colored central part of your eye). This condition is called Ptosis (TOE-sis).

 

Eyelid ptosis is caused by an anatomical defect that you're born with it or an acquired functional problem caused by nerve damage, age, or certain medical conditions (stroke, Horner's syndrome, myasthenia gravis, diabetes, a tumor, or stye).

    Droopy eyelids, known as ptosis, can stem from various causes. In the case of this lovely patient, aponeurotic ptosis was the culprit, where the muscle responsible for lifting the eyelid slipped from its attachment due to long-term contact lens use. This condition often leads to a tired or sleepy appearance. To correct the eyelid droop, they underwent scarless ptosis correction alongside bilateral upper lid blepharoplasty. Here are images capturing the before and one-month post-surgery transformations.
