What is Acquired ptosis ?
Acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common medical condition that:
- Can develop later in life
- Affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age
- Usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the lid to droop
- May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. It could be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
Millions of people who have acquired ptosis may not even be aware of it
- Millions of people over the age of 40 may have acquired ptosis
- But only 15% have been diagnosed, and even fewer have received any treatment*
*Estimate of prevalence was calculated using both U.S. Census data and a published study by Sridharan et al. (1995). The Sridharan study observed a prevalence rate of 11.5% in the United Kingdom population (n=400), which was then applied to the U.S. Census’ projected 2020 population of Americans aged 40+ years.

Low-lying eyelid(s) can affect eyesight by not only blocking your vision, but also by reducing field of vision, which may interfere with day-to-day functions such as
