If the droop is not inflamed but seems spontaneous and possibly progressive, then it might be due to neurologic issues and various eye muscle paralyses.

I took ecstasy ("molly"/pure mdma) last night, and the next morning I have one droopy eyelid. What could cause it?
Sympathatomimetic: Sympathetic nervous system innervates the levator palpabrie superioris muscle, which elevates the eyelids. Ecstasy is methylenedioxymethamphetamine and it stimulates the sympathatic nervous system (sns) but it can also cause neurotoxicity of the sns, resulting in damage of the sns. Since, sns elevates the eyelid muscle, it's damage will result in drooping of the eyelid. ...Read more
One of the doctors said that it is possible to get drooping eyelid corrected through drops while the other disagreed.So what is the solution?Plz ans.
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have eczema on one eyelid, been treating with 1% cortisone cream for 8 mos. My eyelid is drooping, is this caused by cortisone, and will it resolve?
Possible: Use of corticosteroid ophthalmic drops have rarely been reported to cause ptosis. Corticosteroids can cause muscle weakness(corticosteroid myopathy). The thinest skin in the body is in the eyelid. It is conceivable that prolonged use could cause weakness of the levator palpebrae superioris muscle that raises the eyelid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
