Though the most common treatment for ptosis is surgery, it may not be necessary to treat the condition early in life if the condition is mild or moderate. Adult ptosis, on the other hand, is usually caused by the separation of the levator muscle tendon from the eyelid or as a complication of another disease involving the levator tendon and its nerve supply, such as diabetes. Multiple tests can be conducted to identify the cause of ptosis in adults, but the treatment is normally surgery regardless of the cause.
