Upneeq® is a prescription eye drop which treats acquired ptosis. It works by stimulating the muscles that raise the eyelids to create the look of brighter, wider eyes.

What is Acquired Ptosis?

Acquired ptosis is a condition where the upper eyelids droop which can affect one or both eyes. Acquired ptosis can affect a person’s vision, making it difficult to see clearly, and can also affect their appearance. Some people with acquired ptosis also refer to their eyes as looking “tired” or “sleepy.” This may even make them look older than they are.  

What are the Causes of Acquired Ptosis?

Acquired ptosis can be caused by a variety of factors. Some common causes of acquired ptosis include: 

  • Age-related muscle weakness
  • Trauma to the eye or eyelid
  • Neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease or myasthenia gravis
  • Excessive eye rubbing or eyelid pulling due to eye irritation or long-term contact lens use
  • Use of certain medications, such as antihistamines or antidepressants

How is a Droopy Eyelid Treated?

The treatment of a droopy eyelid, also known as low-lying lids, depends on the underlying cause. In some cases, the condition may resolve on its own. In other cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the muscles or nerves that control the eyelid. However, for those who are looking for a non-invasive eyelid lift solution, Upneeq®, ptosis eye drops, may be a viable option.
