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.
Candidates for ptosis repair
Men and women who would benefit the most from ptosis repair are those who have drooping eyelids that prevent them from keeping their eyes open wide enough, hindering or obscuring their vision. To qualify for this procedure, patients must be in great overall health. It's preferred that patients do not smoke and stop taking blood-thinning prescriptions before having this surgery. If you want to find out if ptosis repair could be the solution for your eyelid problems, you will need to schedule a consultation at our Bloomington, IN office and speak with a member of our team. During the consultation, one of our eye surgeons will review your medical history and assess your ptosis. From there, a personalized treatment plan will be created for you.
