WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Ptosis is the drooping of one or both eyelids. It may affect your vision. You may tilt your head back to see underneath the drooping eyelid. You may also try to lift your eyelids by raising your eyebrows. Ptosis may be caused by poor development, weakening, or detachment of the muscle that lifts the eyelid. Certain conditions that affect the muscles or nerves of the eye may also cause ptosis.
