    Would you recommend this type of surgery for a child born with droopy eyelids. My daughter is 5 soon to be 6 and she has droopy eyelids. Having them has caused her great agony and she fears interactions with other children. I fear having this problem will continue to effect her social behavior now and in later life. What would you recommend?

    i have been born with a natural ptosis on my left eyelid. i still have it to this day at the age of 16. with my droopy lefteyelid, i cant seem to be able to control how to widen my left eye and such but can only open and close it. and when i sleep, apparently, my left eye is open. if i were to correct this, would i be able to control my left eye? like making my eyes look bigger by raising my eyebrows? if i sleep, would my left eye be open? since the surgery is to tighten the muscles after all. and does this ptosis surgery repair generally an affordable price to pay or is it quite expensive?

    My eyelid is drooping on the right side, and I recently discovered a chalazion on the inside of the lid. I have been using a hot compress on my eye every three hours, and I'm wondering if this is something that will go away on it's own. I'd really not like to get surgery as I cannot afford it.

I visited an eye specialist in Germany, she told there is nothing wrong. Because she was just focusing on my vision which is ofocurse fine. Kindly please let me know what causes this eye drooping and how can i fix it without surgery?
