Experimental: Patients operated for ptosis by levator advancement
patients undergoing surgical repair for aponeurotic ptosis by the procedure- levator advancement.
Procedure: Levator advancement
A transcutaneous procedure in which the Levator palpebrae aponeurosis is advanced and attached to the tarsus.
Experimental: Patients operated for ptosis by white line advancement
patients undergoing surgical repair for aponeurotic ptosis by the procedure- white line advancement
Procedure: White line advancement
A transconjunctival procedure in which the Levator palpebrae aponeurosis is advanced and attached to the tarsus.
Experimental: Patients operated for ptosis by Müller resection
patients undergoing surgical repair for aponeurotic ptosis by the procedure- Müller's muscle-conjunctival resection.
Procedure: Müller's muscle-conjunctival resection procedure
A transconjunctival procedure in which part of the muller muscle and conjunctiva are resected.
- Diagnosis of objective or subjective deterioration in dry eye status [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Dry eye status will be measured by a composite of tests, including Ocular surface disease index (OSDI) questionnaire (which indicates subjective status), and a number of objective tests - Shirmer test, Flurocein dye, Lissamine green dye and tear breakup time
- Ptosis repair procedure success [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Success will be assessed by comparison of margin reflex distance1 (MRD1) measurement before and after surgery
