What Causes Drooping Eyelids?

Drooping eyelids, medically known as ptosis, can significantly impact one’s appearance and, in some cases, vision.

As individuals age, the muscles responsible for lifting the eyelids gradually weaken and stretch, leading to a drooping or sagging appearance.

This age-related ptosis can affect both the upper and lower eyelids, causing them to appear heavy or hooded.

Other factors that can contribute to the development of drooping eyelids include:

  • Muscle or nerve damage

  • Congenital ptosis (genetics or underdevelopment at birth)

  • Injury

  • Medical conditions

  • Eyelid growths

What causes drooping eyelids?

Drooping eyelids, also known as ptosis, can be caused by several factors. One common cause is ageing, as the muscles responsible for lifting the eyelids weaken over time. Other potential causes include:

  1. Muscle or nerve damage: Conditions such as Bell’s palsy or certain neurological disorders can affect the muscles or nerves controlling eyelid movement, leading to drooping.
  2. Congenital ptosis: Some people are born with drooping eyelids due to underdevelopment or malformation of the muscles that lift the eyelids.
  3. Injury: Trauma to the eye or surrounding area can damage the muscles or nerves involved in eyelid movement, resulting in ptosis.
  4. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as myasthenia gravis or Horner’s syndrome, can cause ptosis as a symptom.
  5. Eyelid growths: Tumors or other growths on the eyelid or surrounding tissues can weigh down the eyelid, causing it to droop.

Treatment for ptosis depends on the underlying cause and may include surgery, medication, or other interventions to address the underlying issue. It’s essential to consult with a specialist who can provide personalised advice and reccomend the best treatment options. To book your free consultation at our clinic, click here.
