If i understand correctly you have a droopy eye which closes by itself . We call it Ptosis in medical terms . Ptosis of one eye can be a feature of unilateral 3rd nerve palsy , Horner's syndrome , Myaesthenia Gravis, and a few other causes. It needs complete neurological exam of your eye to find out where exactly is the issue . You will need to see a neurologist for this .

Sometimes it can be age related but other causes should be ruled out before calling it senile ptosis.

Let me know if you have any queries on this
