Does the drooping change? Sometimes normal, sometimes droopy?
Do you wear contact lenses?
Yes, I wear contacts. And it is always droopy.
Some background: I was born with childhood strabismus and had surgery at 22 to correct my eyes from pointing out
At what age did you first notice the droopiness?
Just in the last week or so.
Most common cause of droopy eyelid is due to stretching of the eyelid. Common in older patients and also in people who use contact lenses due to the constant stretching of the eyelid.
Other causes of droopy eyelid can be due to myasthenia gravis. This condition often has variability in the amount of droopy eyelid.
I'd recommend you see an ophthalmologist to check for these conditions.
It is likely the ptosis or droopy eyelid is from contact lens use.
If it is bothersome, surgery to lift the lid may be an option.
But would it be such a sudden change? We had pictures done in March and my eyes look normal.
No, it would not be such a sudden change.
it is important to search for other causes with this sudden change. An ophthalmologist is the best doctor to do this.
