Eye M.D. can check: An eye doctor (md) can check to see if the ptosis might be related to contact lenses (other disorders cause ptosis). The patient can bring some pictures of himself along, so the doctor can see what the lids looked like in the past (bring also pictures of one's neutral face, tired face, sleepy face, etc..., not just a big smiley face). Lenses wear can be stopped to see if the lids return to normal.
