Your eyes reflects your personality

A young professional had recently joined the workforce. His clients, colleagues and seniors thought of him as a disinterested employee despite him working as hard as anyone else.

Why you ask?

He has had mild droopy eyelids (known as ptosis) since birth. It was not affecting his day to day functioning and vision when he is looking straight. However, the symmetrically droopy eyelids made it look like he was disinterested in the work he was doing- both when he was in college and now when he is working. 

This problem can be easily treated with a day care, single sitting surgery and there need not even be a external skin incision. The surgery is known as conjunctivo-mullerectomy where the ptosis (droopy eyelid) is corrected using an incision on the wet surface of the eyelid. The surgery and recovery is faster than conventional ptosis correction surgery. The outcomes of this surgery are very predictable if the patient selection is done correctly by the treating oculoplastic surgeon- as was in this case. 

This young man was thrilled with the final outcome of the surgery and he got to reclaim his real personality.
