Recurrent ptosis

This lovely lady came to see me with “recurrent” ptosis. She had successful surgery in 2009, and said that it failed 5 years later.

During the consult, she kept touching her eyes, so I asked her if she rubbed…she said she wasn’t sure.

So the key question to ask next is this: if you were to rub your eyes, how would you do it?
Immediately, she rubbed the right eye, pulling the upper lid sideways and down.

It doesn’t take a genius to identify the cause of her recurrent ptosis, but it did take some time to explain it to her, and counsel her on what to do.

When she learns to overcome her rubbing addiction, I will correct the ptosis.
