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. Led by skilled eye surgeon Dr. R. Daniel Grossman, 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.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
