Ptosis or the droopy eyelid

Another condition that seems to,occur fairly frequently here is something called congenital ptosis. The muscle that opens your eye is either absent or not working well the result is that the eye never completely opens.

This child is trying to look up.

To correct this we take some tissue from his thigh and use it to replace the muscle. If he returns for a post op checkup I'll have a post op picture.
