Are low-lying eyelids making your eyes look a little tired?You may have acquired ptosis.
Acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common medical condition that:
- Can develop later in life
- Affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age
- Usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the upper eyelid to droop
- May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition.
It could also be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
Millions of people who have acquired ptosis may not even be aware of it
- Millions of people over the age of 40 may have acquired ptosis
- But only 15% have been diagnosed, and even fewer have received any treatment*
Acquired ptosis can lead to vision impairment
- Low-lying eyelid(s) can affect eyesight by not only blocking your vision, but also by reducing field of vision, which may interfere with day-to-day functions such as:
- Computer use
- Looking up without the need to tilt your head back
