Eye Lift Drops
Why do my eyelids so look low?
If you have ever asked yourself this question or thought your eyes look “tired” or “sleepy,” you may have a condition called acquired blepharoptosis (also known as acquired ptosis or low-lying lids).
Acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common medical condition that:
- Can develop later in life
- Affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often in older adults
- Usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the upper eyelid to droop and sag
- May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. It could also be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
Millions of people who have acquired ptosis may not even be aware of it
- Millions of people over the age of 40 may have acquired ptosis
- But only an approximated 15% have been diagnosed, and even fewer have received any treatment
Acquired ptosis can lead to vision impairment
Low-lying eyelid(s) can affect eyesight by not only blocking your vision, but also by reducing field of vision, which may interfere with many day-to-day functions such as:
- Computer use
- Looking up without the need to tilt your head back
The change in the eyelids is usually so gradual that a person is rarely aware of it happening.
