Can Wearing Eyeglasses Cause My Eyelids To Look Puffy
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
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?

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
My aunt wears glasses but she still has vision trouble, could an eyelid lift help? I wonder if my aunt’s drooping eyelids are starting to interfere with her ability to see clearly. She is in her 70s, but I am concerned that the procedure may cause more se

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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.

Im short sighted, i have glasses. Got blurred vision in both my eyes. Have pain in only one eye, (crease of eyelid/feels like its above the eye) ?
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
