Eyelid Drops Next To What Is Ptosis?
Mlm I want to ask, my daughter was born with a trun eyelid, what is the name ptosis? I’ve been to pediatricians, it’s not ptosis, but after searching for information it’s ptosis, because the eye muscles don’t go up so I see I have to raise my eyebrows. Does it have to be an operation? I want to send photos of my child. Thank you
Hello Mother, thank you for the question.
Ptosis is a condition in which the eyelid drops, which is caused by congenital birth or acquired. This Ptosis can be caused due to disturbance / weakness in the muscles of the eyelids or due to interference with the innervation. Ptosis can be caused by injury / trauma, bell's palsy, stroke, myasthenia gravis, tumor, horner's syndrome, etc. This Ptosis in addition to disturbing appearance, can also interfere with vision, especially in children, which causes amblyopia or lazy eyes. Therefore, this ptosis should be treated appropriately, especially in children. We recommend that you consult an ophthalmologist about the condition, the doctor will conduct a direct examination on the patient and assess the condition of the disease that occurs, whether ptosis is correct or not, and determine the cause of the complaint. Handling will be tailored to the cause, can the method of surgery and so on depending on the cause. Surgery for ptosis is generally done by cutting the eye muscles and forming the eyelids. Therefore we recommend to do an inspection first. It is better to maintain the child's health condition, keep feeding the child according to his age, and immunize according to the recommended schedule.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
