Blepharoptosis is a surgical modification of dropping upper eyelid, drooping of the upper eyelid causing a narrowing of the palpebral aperture. It is often divided into two main types: congenital and acquired. The congenital type present at birth is usually the result of interference with the superior division of the oculomotor nerve, or associated with the blepharophimosis syndrome. The acquired type may result from any affection of the nerve supply of the upper eyelid musculature from a disease of the muscles themselves (e.g. myasthenia gravis) or from mechanical interference in elevating the eyelid due to the weight of a tumor, trauma or chronic tissue hypoxia (e.g. diabetes).
