Are low-lying eyelids making your eyes look a little tired? You may have acquired ptosis.

Low-lying lids may be caused by acquired blepharoptosis. If you see signs of low-lying lids, talk to Florida Aesthetics and wellness about getting UPLIFTED with Upneeq! Upneeq is the only FDA-approved once-daily prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes


If your eyes look “tired” or “sleepy,” you may have a condition called acquired blepharoptosis (also known as acquired ptosis or low-lying lids).


Can develop later in life

Affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age

Usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the upper eyelid to droop

May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. It could also be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
