ptosis with marcus gunn   Posted By Aditya das    Date : 29-Aug-06   07:50 AM     Reply

My 25 day newborn son has been diagnosed with ptosis with Marcus Gunn in Right eye upper lid-ie. the right eyelid droops to the extent of around 50% of normal opening. Also when his jaw moves (sucking or yawning) the right eyelid opens completely. Additionally he also has a tear duct blockage in his right eye for which we are doing massaging and applying antibiotic eye drop and direct spraying of breast milk into the eye. His extent of droop has reduced from birth - till about the 15th day he was opening only around 20% - has gradually improved to around 50%. On an advice by a homeopath, he has been given one globule of Pulsatilla 200 dissolved in mother's milk on the 20th day. we have seen some improvement since then - however during this period his swelling in the right eye and the watering has also decreased.
