Droopy eyelids are on as we age, just as cataracts are. Fortunately both can be successfully treated. See your ophthalmologist for details. Eyelid surgery can often be treated in the office and can even be combined with cosmetic procedures for a younger look!

Drooping eyelids may be repaired surgically with a ptosis operation by a qualified ophthalmologist.  Some post-cataract eyelid drooping is temporary, however, so wait at least a few months before considering surgery.
