Understanding Dermatochalasis
Posted on 05/26/2015 22:26

When considering your eyes and your eye health, it’s important to remember that some conditions that may affect your vision develop outside or around of your eyes, rather than within them.

Ptosis, however, is not the only condition that can interfere with a patient’s eyesight.
