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 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.
