Can wearing eyeglasses cause my eyelids to look puffy?

Maybe: Certain prescriptions of glasses, often for large amounts of far-sightedness, can magnify the appearance of the eyes and structures around the eyes, like the eyelids. I do not recall a patient ever specifically saying that their glasses made their eyelids look "puffy", though. ...Read more

Can not wearing your glasses cause a droopy eyelid? I have glasses but don't have to wear them   all the time. Never had this problem just notice it.

Not likely: Your lids could look droopy if you chronically squint to see better, but should not be permanent. Check with your glasses on and see if the drooping disappears. If your lids really are droopy, check some old pictures. If there is a change, or if they get more droopy when you are tired, it would be worth having an ophthalmologist see if it is anything that needs treating. ...Read more

Take a look at her: There are many reasons for lowered vision which her ophthalmologist can discover. Drooping lids can interfere with vision if they fall over the lash line. Does she need to lift her head up to see, or can you see the pupil from a straight on gaze. If there is obstruction, then lifting the lids will clear the vision (try taping them up). Otherwise there is another issue. ...Read more

I tend to open my eyes wide when wearing contact lenses, which causes some eye fatigue. Is this normal? Should I consciously close up my eyelids a bit as if I am wearing glasses?

I tend to open my eyes wide when wearing contact lenses, which causes some eye fatigue. Is this normal? Should I consciously close up my eyelids a bit as if I am wearing glasses?

It is common: to open your eyes wider while wearing contact lenses, especially while getting use to them. If your eyes are becoming fatigued while wearing contact lens, you should decrease the amount of time that you are wearing them, in order to allow your eyes to adapt. Try wearing the contacts for only 4 hours/day for a few days, if your eyes do not feel fatigued, gradually increase the number of hours/day ...Read more

Lower eyelid twitch intermittently for 5 days, not stressed, tired, on any medication. Dont wear glasses or contacts. What else could be causing it?

Lower eyelid twitch intermittently for 5 days, not stressed, tired, on any medication. Dont wear glasses or contacts. What else could be causing it?

See Dr. if persists: Twitching of an eyelid, which happens in normal people, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Myokymia starts and stops spontaneously. In the eyelids, it can last a few minutes to a few days. One should see an ophthalmologist (md eye doctor) if such symptoms persist, keep recurring, or are combined with any other symptoms. ...Read more

Recommend evaluation: I would recommend an evaluation by an optometrist (optician in UK i believe) or an ophthalmologist, as such symptoms could be as simple as a form of a headachr, but as serious as intermittent angle closure. Intermittent angle closure can occur in far sighted individuals and requires attemtiom ...Read more
