Pathologic droopy eyelid, also called ptosis, may occur due to trauma, age, or various medical disorders.
This condition is called unilateral ptosis when it affects one eye and bilateral ptosis when it affects both eyes.
It may come and go or it might be permanent. It can be present at birth, where it’s known as congenital ptosis, or you can develop it later in life, which is known as acquired ptosis.
Depending on the severity of the condition, droopy upper eyelids can block or greatly reduce vision depending on how much it obstructs the pupil.
In most cases, the condition will resolve, either naturally or through medical intervention.
