Dear Therapist,
It is a rare genetic disorder. Patients have a drooping upper eyelid and the inside of the eye folds are abnormal. ( This can be corrected by operation. They can't open their eyes normally. Associated disorders may include mental retardation, ovarian and uterine atrophy with infertility, and tearduct abnormalities. Type I occurs in females and is associated with infertility. Type II occurs in both males and females.
