rnI want to ask, 1 year ago I had congenital ptosis surgery and it was already the third operation, but it’s not perfect either. In fact, after recovering, I realized that my eyelids couldn’t close or open during sleep and when I looked down my eyeballs looked bulging. Now my eyes are even weirder. May I know why? And please provide a solution. thank you

Hello, good afternoon Chori.

Congenital ptosis is a congenital condition in which the upper eyelid drops so that the person who experiences it cannot open his eyes completely and cover the person's vision. If this condition is left unchecked, amblyopia (lazy eye) will occur, resulting in decreased vision.

Surgery for congenital ptosis can be performed at any age, depending on the severity of the condition. If there is a lazy eye condition or an ocular torticollis condition occurs, which is an abnormal head position that occurs due to the sufferer's habit of getting optimal vision. There are many surgical procedures to treat ptosis. Even after surgery, about 50% of patients may require reoperation within 8-10 years of the first operation.

It should be noted that the results of treatment in each person will certainly be different, including in the case of surgery to correct ptosis. Some patients may only need one surgery, and some patients may need several surgeries to get the desired result, of course it all depends on the ptosis condition experienced. It is very difficult to give an answer to your question, without examining it in person. It is recommended that you consult again what you are experiencing with the doctor who has previously treated you, because the doctor is the one who knows best about your previous condition until now.

That's all, hope it helps.

Regards, dr. Denisa
