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 more
