In brief: Congenital ptosis
The timing of congenital ptosis repair depends on the severity of the ptosis as well as the health of the patient.
In severe ptosis, the repair may be done early, especially if there is associated abnormal eye movement from the ptosis. If the ptosis is less severe, then the repair may be done at 3 to 4 years of age.
