The problem of drooping eyelids is usually due to aging processes that increase with age. With the passing time, the skin of the eyelids becomes flaccid and less elastic due to collagen loss and its excess occurs due to stretching. These are natural aging processes that cause us to lose our youthful facial expressions.
Drooping eyelids make the face look older, more tired and sad. Drooping corners of the eyes age us, and sometimes the excess of skin can limit the field of vision.
In some cases, drooping eyelids are not only a cosmetic defect, they may contribute to the development of functional disorders and amblyopia, resulting from obscuring the pupil. Due to the drooping eyelid, astigmatism, hyperopia, as well as squint disease can develop. It can also cause insecurities and lower self-esteem.
