Dr. Tom K. Pousti answered:

I get droopy eyelids as I've been sleeping only very lightly for the past week. Is that permanent and will require surgery?

Probably Not...

Sleep
If the changes you've noticed around the eyelid area are related to lack of sleep, these changes will be temporary. Longer-term, once you have established regular/healthy sleeping patterns, and if the eyelid changes persist, then in person consultations may be helpful to you.

Dr. Mary B. Engrav answered:

Every month during my period my eyelids swell up and get itchy. Why does that happen? They swell up while I'm sleeping and go down after I''ve been up for awhile. They swell up between days 2 and 4 of my period.

That

That is a very rare symptom. The first thing I would be worried about would be an allergic reaction. If you are taking anything for discomfort from menstruation, such as Advil or another medication, I would wonder if you are allergic to it. Fluid retention is another possibility, although again to have eyelid swelling would be very rare; most women have more "overall" fluid retention. My first concern would be some type of allergic reaction. Please do discuss this with your doctor. If you have increased swelling, any rash, any shortness of breath or new symptoms then you would have to be seen immediately in the ER.

I have a 5 week old son, who is getting consistently wet and dry sleep only in his right eye, what is the cause and treatment? It happen when he is sleeping or when he is awake and at times the dryness stick his eyelids together.

Lacrimal system

Sleep
Your child likely has a nasolacrimal duct occlusion. Keep the eye clean and perform Crigler massage frequently. Description of massage technique can be found online. Most resolve with time but surgical correction is sometimes needed.

Dr. William Goldie answered:

Our 18 month daughter has suddenly developed mild twitching (movement of limbs, eyelids) while she's asleep. Is there a cause for concern?

Entirely normal

Women
Infants have two types of sleep: quiet sleep when they barely move and are very difficult to arouse, and active sleep when they are easier to arouse and move around a great deal. Twitching and muscle jerks, strange breathing, talking and lots of motor movements can occur during this normal phase of active sleep. They "act out" their dreams - like the dog chasing rabbits in his sleep.

is it a problem if eyelids don't fully close during sleep?

Eyes not closed

Dsc00026_edited
I recommend Speedo swimmer's goggles. It seals the area and prevents evaporation of the remaining tears. It has an elastic band that does not interfere with sleep, or tend to come off during sleep.
