Shreee Ram Hospital



We provide specialized diagnosis and treatment for ptosis, characterized by upper eyelid drooping or sagging. Ptosis may arise from weakened or stretched eyelid muscles, impairing vision and affecting appearance.

Our team of skilled ophthalmologists and oculoplastic surgeons at Shree Ram Hospital is dedicated to addressing ptosis and restoring optimal eyelid function and appearance. We offer comprehensive evaluations and personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs and goals.

Diagnosis of ptosis begins with a thorough examination of the eyelids, eye movements, and visual acuity. Our experienced ophthalmologists utilize advanced diagnostic techniques, such as measurements of eyelid height and levator muscle function, to accurately assess the severity and underlying cause of ptosis.

Treatment options for ptosis may vary depending on the underlying cause, severity of symptoms, and individual patient preferences. At Shree Ram Hospital, we offer the following services for ptosis:

  1. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty): For patients with moderate to severe ptosis, surgical correction may be recommended to reposition the eyelid and restore normal eyelid height and contour. Our skilled oculoplastic surgeons perform various techniques, including levator advancement, Müller muscle resection, and frontalis suspension, to address ptosis and achieve optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes.
  2. Botox Injections: In cases of mild to moderate ptosis caused by muscle weakness or nerve damage, Botox injections may be used to temporarily elevate the eyelid and improve eyelid symmetry. Botox works by weakening the muscles responsible for pulling down the eyelid, allowing the levator muscle to lift the eyelid more effectively.
  3. Eyelid Crutches: For patients with severe ptosis who are not candidates for surgery, eyelid crutches or ptosis props may be prescribed to provide temporary support and elevate the drooping eyelid. These devices attach to eyeglasses or contact lenses and help improve visual function and comfort.
  4. Management of Underlying Conditions: In cases where ptosis is secondary to an underlying medical condition or neurological disorder, our team works closely with other specialists to address the underlying cause and provide comprehensive treatment and management.

At Shree Ram Hospital and Eye Care Centre, we understand the impact that ptosis can have on vision, self-confidence, and quality of life. Our compassionate team is committed to providing individualized care and support to help patients achieve optimal eyelid function and aesthetics. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of ptosis, such as drooping eyelids or vision obstruction, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced team for personalized evaluation and treatment.
