Blepharoptosis can make eyes appear tired/sleepy/droopy, or make one eyelid visibly lower than the other.

This common eye disorder may cause vision impairment, interfering with day-to-day functions such as reading, driving, and computer use.

If you are bothered by your eyelid(s), schedule an appointment to speak with your eye care provider at Shawnee Vision Source in Shawnee.
