Droopy eyelids occur when the edge of the upper eyelid covers part or all of the pupil, blocking part of your vision field. In most cases, a drooping upper eyelid results from aging but may follow trauma or eye surgery. Repair can improve vision and appearance. Dr, Morton is trained in addressing the cause of the droopy eyelid and applying the appropriate surgical correction. Ptosis surgery is often performed in conjunction with a blepharoplasty.
