Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
From what you have told me I would expect that your eyelid will be able to open all the way once the effects of the trauma have resolved.
I would guess that someone threw the remote at you?
If things don't continue to improve you should have an ophthalmologist take a look at your eyelid.
Does this make sense to you?
