Ptosis is a medical condition that describes the drooping of the upper eyelid. Ptosis might affect one or both of our eyes. Ptosis results in patients having a constant “sleepy” or “drowsy” look to their faces, giving the impression that they are always tired or disinterested. Patients suffering from moderately severe ptosis would also experience that their field of vision is partially blocked or obstructed due to the drooping eyelid.
