I have a rare condition called Marcus-Gunn jaw winking syndrome with ptosis in my right eye. The ptosis is severe with some strabismus. Are there effective treatments for this condition?
Treatment for Marcus-Gunn Jaw Winking Syndrome with Right Eye Ptosis?

Treatment of Marcus Gunn Jaw wink with blepharoptosis repair and/or Botulinum Toxin
You should have this evaluated, if not already done, by a neurologist and opthalmologist to rule out any underlying conditions that need to be treated first. There are many options for severe eyelid ptosis including a sling from the eyebrow area. the jaw winking can sometimes be treated with Botox. But this would only be after being fully evaluated and understood.
