Hello

Welcome and Thank you for your query posted.

My name is***** and being a Medicine specialist I would be able to provide you with an appropriate solution to your concern.

Please note that my Goal is to provide you with an Excellent Service .

Before I answer your question I would like to get some more information:

This can happen due to a local growth in the upper eyelid or also due to Thyroid problems.

I would suggest you to get the area checked by the doctors as early as possible as this can damage the cornea permanently over time .
