Hi Abdillah, Thank you for the question.
Ptosis is a condition where the eyelids drop more than their normal position when the eyes are open. Ptosis that occurs from birth or within the first year of a person's life is known as congenital ptosis. This condition usually only occurs in one eye and does not affect a person's ability to see. Congenital ptosis is caused by an abnormality of the eye muscles responsible for lifting the eyelids or damage to the nerves acting on this muscle. This condition cannot heal on its own. To treat this condition, surgery is required to repair the eyelid muscles. Usually you need to consult a plastic surgeon specialist for further treatment. Sorry, I am not sure whether your condition can be treated using BPJS but you can consult with the doctor at the clinic or puskesmas where you are registered.
Experiencing this condition may interfere with your self-confidence but as long as your vision function does not experience significant problems, this condition is not dangerous for you.
Hope this information is helpful.
