Ptosis
Ptosis is a permanent drooping of the upper eyelid that can cause headaches, brow aches, or eye irritation, and can obscure vision. The condition is caused by the inability of one of the eyelid’s muscles, called the levator, to fully lift the eyelid. In some cases, ptosis exists at birth, but adults can develop ptosis after surgery, or due to another health condition such as diabetes, kidney disease, or allergies. Ptosis can also result from an eyelid tumor. In most cases, however, ptosis is the result of aging eyelid tissue and weakening muscles.

Treatment for Ptosis 
In most cases, ptosis is corrected by a brief, out-patient surgical procedure during which the levator muscle is shortened slightly so it will lift the eyelid. If ptosis obscures vision, your insurance may cover all or part of the cost of treatment.
