Good afternoon. I want to ask. My child has had a ptosis in her left eye since birth. now he is 1.5 years old Can this congenital ptosis be cured only through surgery or is there a therapy that we can do without surgery? If only with surgery, what age should the surgery be performed? R nThank you …

Hi.

Congenital Ptosis is an inherited disorder whose exact cause is not known with certainty. Congenital Ptosis can cause the child's eyelids to look down, either on one side of the eye or on both eyes. Ptosis can be mild to severe. In severe circumstances, the long ptosis can cause children to experience amblyopia (decreased visual function).

If the ptosis situation that your child is experiencing is not too severe, then the surgery can be postponed until the age is quite safe, which is around 3-4 years. If the ptosis is mild, it may still be possible to do physiotherapy using certain eye support devices. but in most cases, congenital ptosis requires surgery.

Therefore, discuss the situation of your child directly with pediatricians and ophthalmologists, so that doctors can provide appropriate therapeutic suggestions for your child.
