How common is ptosis when using purtox? I'm thinking about having some purtox injections done, and I was wondering if ptosis was common with this drug? I don't want to have a drooping eyelid problem while I'm on vacation..

After using eye drops the liquid keeps on coming out of my eyes though eye lids are closed. Doesn't it result in loss of medicine? Done lasik 3 day back
Yes & no: The eyelid can hold only 1 drop of liquid before the liquid spills out. When you close your eyes, you'll squeeze out any excess fluid. Since the medicine has already had contact with the surface of the eye, it should still be effective. It helps to lean back, stare upwards, place one drop on the outer aspect of the eye then blink very slowly. That should minimize wastage & maximize effect. ...Read more
