Do your low-lying eyelids make your eyes appear tired? Do you wish your eyes were more open? If your eyes appear “tired” or “sleepy,” you may have a condition called acquired blepharoptosis (also known as acquired ptosis or low-lying lids). Millions of people who have developed ptosis may be unaware of it but only 15% have been diagnosed, and even fewer have received treatment. It affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age.
