A 24-year-old otherwise healthy male presented to us with unilateral ptosis and contralateral lid retraction with limitation of extraocular movements; the disease had a gradual chronic course, which raised a suspicion of ocular myasthenia. Ice pack test was performed, which improved the ptosis; further investigations confirmed the diagnosis of ocular myasthenia. Patient was started on pyridostigmine and oral prednisolone which improved the extraocular movements and ptosis.
