Eyelid myokymia: Benign essential blepharospasm is a disease with episodes of involuntary closing of the eyelids. It is much more than just twitches, occurs on both sides and is not as common as eyelid myokymia: small twitches or fibrillations of a portion of the eyelid closing muscle. If affects one side occasionally and is associated with stress, caffeine ingestion, and fatigue.

Not a great solution: Two muscles control upper lid height: levator palpebrae and müllers muscle. The müllers muscle is responsible for about 15% of the upper lid position. It is sympathetically innervated (the fight-or-flight response). Under stress, your eyelid opens up a bit. Certain eyedrops activate the sympathetic system, so it too can raise your lid a bit (0-2mm). It's a temporary fix and not a great solution.

With surgery.: Droopy eyelid can mean either excess skin hanging over the upper eyelid (dermatochalasis) and/or sagging of the upper eyelid edge (blepharoptosis). Dermatochalasis is corrected w/ blepharoplasty, where the excess skin is excised. The scar hides well in the upper lid crease. Blepharoptosis is corrected by tighening the muscle that lifts the lid. This is done via lid crease or conjunctival incision.
