About Ptosis Repair
As the eyelid muscles weaken over time and begin to stretch, ptosis can develop. Ptosis is the clinical term that describes sagging, droopy eyelids that can obscure vision in older patients, and it is usually caused by aging, injury, or hereditary factors. At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, our team of eye experts diagnoses and treats ptosis in patients and removes unwanted skin with a great deal of care and precision. Our team of eye doctors is well-versed in the techniques required to restore the appearance of your eyelid, as well as your vision. In some cases, ptosis repair is paired with a blepharoplasty to ensure your best results. To learn more about the innovative solutions we offer for ptosis repair, contact our office in Bloomington, IN today.
Ptosis Repair Reviews
"Well I was a little bit scared at first. Having cataracts taken out of your eyes to me was a big deal. But after talking to the doctors and the nurses come to find out it is a big deal but the doctor and the nurses can tell you everything you need to know and you don't need to be scared to have it done. The doctors and the nurses are highly professional. Just remember what they say to do make sure you use your eye drops like you're supposed to and when you're in surgery just look at the light the next thing you know it's over with said and done and you'll be happy happy just like I am. My vision now is like it was when I was 35 years old and now I'm 67 so that means I've got another hundred years of being able to see like a 35-year-old."- R.B. / Google / Mar 27, 2023

"My experience with the Eye Center is 100% positive. Dr Chang operated on my cataracts and I now have 20/20 vision although my eyes required prisms before the procedure and now I only need nonprescription reading glasses. The prep staff as well as those in the operating room were kind and reassuring. The reception staff at the Eye Center are excellent. They are professional and welcoming in this busy office. I can’t imagine trusting anyone with my eye care except The Eye Center!"- L.D. / Google / May 20, 2023
