I am having trouble opwning my right eyelid in the morning. I have sand in the corners of my eyes but nothing is "glueing" my eye shut. If I use a warm washcloth on my eye that seems to start the process of it reopening.

I don't understand your question: Are your eyes too every dry

No, I don't have any medical condition. However, my sister has been living with myasthenia gravis for 35 years and her eyelids droop. My do not droop. One just doesn't want to open in the morning.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
