My friends son has this as well, I'm not sure if it effects his vision but I don't think so, honestly I haven't asked her about it but he is in year 1 and it hasn't been operated on. Personally I probably would get it done.

Yes I would get it done, my son has an ear tag - also purely cosmetic which we will have removed. Interested in people's responses given the other thread at the moment. My sons op is not medically necessary, cosmetic and we are not giving him the option of choice which is what most people seem to have an issue with... I'm wondering about having children's ears pinned too... Do parents wait to give them the choice or are there sometimes just things as parents we choose? Maybe it's another thread...

My sister has a lazy eye and my mum was given the wrong advice from the doctor when my sister was little which means she has her lazy eye for life. She hates it, it makes her very self conscious and she has always hated it. She's 31 now and still hates it.
Because of this, I would go ahead with the surgery.

Hi OP. My nephew has ptosis. It also self completed (not completly) by about 1-2yr of age but there was still a slight element. His parents decided to defer surgery till older, but decided to get it done when he got teased ALOT at school because ot it.. poor think was always in tears asking his parents to fix it. He was nearly 9yr when done and went well. The doctor did say there might be nerve daamage, luckily it went well.

Yes I would. Why have them possibly teased at school for something that can be easily treated.

My friends 3yr old had this and he had surgery late last year. He is fine now and no scaring either because of the way the surgeon sutured it.
My ds is 4yrs old and he has a spider Nevis on his face, it looks like a red blotch on his cheek that branches out (sort of like a varicose vein) He is getting conscious of it and often rubs it. It flares up when he gets angry or goes swimming. The dr says it may go away and recommends leaving it another 6mths but he has had it for over 12mths so we made the decision to have it lasered, currently waiting for the appointment.

A friend has this and one of her sons has this to. And she was bullied her whole life for not looking 'right'. So she is having her son's eye corrected to void him going through what she went through.
I see it if it hasn't corrected itself yet I would have it done. And I would have it done while young to avoid to much distruption to their school and social life.

Absolutely, unequivocally, without a doubt, YES. Get it done. You love your little girl unconditionally and know she is beautiful, but unfortunately the other kids at school may not. There is nothing like being teased or bullied to lower the self esteem and it can be very difficult to repair.
