Ptosis with jaw winking in 4.5 mth old   Posted By aditya das    Date : 25-Dec-06   12:07 PM     Reply

Dear Doctors

My son (now 4.5 mths) has been diagnosed with Ptosis with Marcus Gunn. His right eyelid in normal position as of now opens nearly 60-70% of the left eye. (this was much less earlier - has improved since birth). On sucking or yawning or some other type of jaw movement, the right eyelid opens completely. He in last one month seems to be able to reduce his winking movement -compared to what it was earlier - by holding his eyelid more steady.

He also HAD a tear duct block which for last 20 days seems to have been got cured - opening seems to have improved after that as well.

I am based out of Bangalore.
