The Ptosis Prop

The Ptosis Prop

Ptosis prop (also known as eye crutches) are a non-surgical solution to Ptosis, also known as drooping eyelid syndrome.

Affected eyes do not have the ability to open and close properly. In severe cases, a person is not able to open the affected eyelid.

Ptosis eye props are bespoke components installed to eyewear that support the affected eyelid, enabling the eyelid to stay open and allowing an individual to see.

This type of eye wear is not widely available in your high street opticians and is totally bespoke to the patient.

The procedure to fit ptosis props to a frame was passed on to our technician by a very knowledgeable and highly skilled dispensing optician/technician some fifteen years ago and we are the last of the few that can fit these props. 

Dispensed and fitted all in practice.
