Table of Contents

Could Upneeq be a Possible Solution for Post-Stroke or Palsy Ptosis?

Important to note: If you recently had ptosis or suspect a recent stroke, please consult with your doctor right away. Upneeq is only a cosmetic/functional possible temporary fix and will not address the underlying issue which might be life threatening.

Upneeq for stroke palsyIntroduction

Ptosis, a condition characterized by the drooping of the upper eyelid, can significantly impact both appearance and vision. For patients who have experienced strokes, palsies, or similar events, ptosis is not just a cosmetic concern but a functional one, affecting the superior field of vision. Upneeq offers a non-surgical solution to improve both the look of your eyelids and your field of vision.

What is Ptosis?

Upper Visual Field Defect Ptosis Vs w/ Upneeq

Ptosis is the medical term for drooping of the upper eyelid. It can occur in one eye (unilateral ptosis) or both eyes (bilateral ptosis). This condition can result from various factors, including aging, trauma, muscle disease, or neurological events such as strokes or palsies. These conditions can cause weakness in the upper eyelid muscle that is partially responsible for holding the eyelid up. (Complete eyelid Ptosis is often caused by the 3rd nerve and rare). For stroke patients, ptosis can severely hinder daily activities by limiting the field of vision.

The Impact of Ptosis on Vision

When the upper eyelid droops, it can obstruct the superior field of vision. This limitation can make everyday tasks such as reading, driving, and navigating environments more challenging and hazardous. Correcting ptosis is, therefore, crucial not only for cosmetic reasons but also for improving safety and quality of life.

In the image to the right you can clearly see a patient’s superior visual Field (upper Visual Field) is improved by about 20-30% after instilling Upneeq.
