When is Ptosis a Problem?
It is only a problem when the eyes are in a relaxed,rested gaze, and some of the pupil is being blocked... other than that, if the eyelid crease lies above the pupil in a resting gaze, than there is no cause of concern besides cosmetic? Or could such a small degree of ptosis cause unnecessary eye strain?
