    Hugs. My dd has ptosis.
    Hers is mild so there is no need for surgery. I know the ophthalmologist told us unless it causes issues with her having full sight then we wouldn't do anything.
    I do know a few people who had surgery done for their kiddos because they would have to put their head back to see properly.

    Thanks. Ds is 6mths old, we noticed his right eyelid droop only over the past 4 weeks, it wasn't there prior. Took him to dr yesterday and agreed it was ptosis which was what I thought it was. The eye clinic was visiting yesterday (good timing) so they saw him and want us to go to Perth next week for neuro scans. His vision isn't affected, he's meeting all his milestones but considering he was lying transverse for the last few months inutero and he had to have physio in the first 3mths due to him having left sided weakness (which is all fine now) they want to check for nerve damage etc. I'm a bit freaked out but I have to try not to worry so much I know. We have just seemed to be dealing with one thing after another this year, it hasn't been a good start thus far.

    My dd has a ptosis in one eye but like a pp it's not serious enough to need surgery. The ophthalmologist said that most people have some kind of ptosis especially as they get older.
