The only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes.
What Causes Droopy Eyelids?
Acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common condition which can affect adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age. Ptosis usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the lid to droop. The condition may be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition.
Patients may not bring up concerns about low-lying lids because they:
- May hesitate to bring up an “appearance” concern
- Do not know the cause may be a medical condition
- May think there are no topical prescription treatment options
