Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/27/2014 -- As a specialist in performing Oculoplastic surgeries for her patients, Dr. Kathleen Albrecht helps patients with eyelid conditions that include various eye trauma and inflammatory lumps and bumps on the eyelids, including cancerous tumors. Another common condition of the eyelids is ptosis, or droopy upper eyelids, and Dr. Kathleen Albrecht is pleased to announce she will be performing surgical procedures for ptosis in the greater Chicago area.
Ptosis can occur in individuals of all ages and is experienced when the upper eyelid is in an abnormally low position. This is typically a result of whether the muscles in the eyelid are strong enough to support and properly raise the eyelid. Dr. Kathleen Albrecht has seen many patients who suffer from ptosis, and takes great pride in precise surgeries that restore the natural look of the eye regaining symmetry and good vision, as she sees the resounding impact and appreciation on the faces of her patients when the procedure is completed.
It is important to get the eye condition checked out as soon as possible because of the fact other conditions, like amblyopia or astigmatism, can be caused if left untreated. When occurring in young children, ptosis can interfere with the development of vision. Dr. Albrecht focuses on precise detail in order to perform safe and successful surgeries for patients of all age groups. She protects the vision, ensuring vison does not deteriorate due to ptosis.
Highly regarded in the Chicago eye care industry, patients can trust they are in good hands when visiting the premier aesthetic eye specialist, Dr. Kathleen Albrecht.
