    Question:

    How is ptosis in babies cured?


    Answer:

    Congenital ptosis if moderate to severe is treated with ptosis surgery. This procedure, performed by an ophthalmologist, is designed to either tighten the droopy or weak eye lid muscle or place a suspender underneath the skin attaching the eyelid to the eyebrow. In this instance the baby is able to open his eyes more widely by raising his brow. It is important to have your baby evaluated by an ophthalmologist who can assist you with these procedures.
