“What Is Ptosis Correction?”

When you use your eye muscle to open eyes, sleepy eyes tend to have weak muscles and the upper eyelid covers the pupil giving a tired appearance.
This is called ptosis symptoms which should be fixed early to prevent further aesthetic problems such as forehead wrinkles and sagging eyelids due to weak eye muscles.
Ptosis correction not only re-shapes the eyes for the aesthetic reasons, but also helps you functionally open your eyes more comfortably.

Doctor's Message

Are you stressed out because people tell you often that your eyes look tired?
Ptosis Symptoms are common innate features for many people who do not have distinct eyelid crease causing sleepy eyes and even forehead wrinkles if the case is severe.
When you open your eyes, if you tend to use your forehead and eyebrow muscle instead of eye muscle itself, you most likely have a weak eye muscle.
