    Severe congenital ptosis (drooping of the upper lid) that occludes the pupillary axis can prevent normal visual development, making surgical repair or taping of the lids necessary early in life. Less complete ptosis may intermittently occlude the pupil or induce corneal irregularities and, therefore, warrants careful assessment for findings of amblyopia.
