Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology and retina surgery experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Many times this droopy eyelid will resolve as the eye heals over the course of a month or so.
If it doesn't then it is possible that the muscle that helps to keep the eyelid was stretched or torn.
The good news?
This can be repaired fairly easily in the vast majority of cases.
Does this make sense to you?
