Instead of intervening in the muscle that opens the eyelid, a method of helping that muscle must be applied. In this method, auxiliary muscles are used to hold the eyelid upward.
For example, an attempt is made to open the eyelid by using a piece of muscle or using a fiber (with the help of silicone threads or fiber from the patient’s body). The other method is applied for extended eyelid muscles depending on congenital, trauma, or age.
If the muscle is working a little and if there is a slight movement, the problem can be solved by shortening the muscle length. Thus, the shortened muscular strength will be enough to open the eyelid.
Children born with ptosis are called congenital ptosis. This can be caused by muscle-related problems that lift the eyelid. The most obvious sign of ptosis is a drooping eyelid. Another sign is that alignment of the upper eyelid crease equal to each other. A child can bend his head backwards with ptosis, may raise eyebrows to remove the jaw or trying to see better. Over time, these movements can cause head and neck problems.
Sometimes there may be other problems observed as a child born with ptosis. Eye movement problems can include eye muscle disease, tumours (on the eyelid or elsewhere), and other problems.
