I have a small amount of blurred vision and droopy eyelid in my left eye due to a chlamydia infection 10 years ago. Is there any fix?
Your Eye M.D. should evaluate the cause of your blurred vision. A droopy eyelid may be improvable with a ptosis repair. This is an outpatient procedure performed under a local anesthetic in which the weakened eyelid muscle is tightened.
