What Does It Mean When One Eyelid Starts To Droopy
Hi, my son just turned 6 months yesterday and I'm afraid because for the past 4-5 days one of his eyelids has been a little droopy.?
Droopy lids: Usually there is some mild eyelid swelling that causes an allergic reaction and eyelids to droop. You can give a trial of benadryl 1.2 tsp (2.5 cc/ml) at night ands see if symptom goes away. If not I would check with pedi MD if needs eye referral to rule out congenital nerve ptosis that can occur at birth, usually one eye. Welcome to health tap, Dr. Ivy FisherSee 1 more doctor answer
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.
Droopy eyelid: There are several causes of a droopy eyelid. Your best bet would be to have your eyes evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.See 2 more doctor answers
Last week I lost one of my contact lenses in vegas so I had to go a few days only wearing one contact in order to see. Now I HAVE a droopy eyelid?
Several options...: Ptosis can be aponeurotic (weakening of muscle attachment to eyelid- most common), myogenic (congenital, myasthenia gravis, opmd), neurogenic (oculomotor nerve injury or horner's syndrome), or mechanical (from mass on eyelid). Surgical correction depends on what type of ptosis you have. Options include: levator advancement, levator resection, mullerectomy, &fasanella-servat procedure (out-dated).See 2 more doctor answers
Insists on it: Allergy is not expected to cause one droopy eyelid. If you are 42 yo, why do you need to have your mom bring you to a doctor unless you are disabled? See a doctor soon to make sure that it is not a neurologic problem.

Can a sleepy eye/lazy eye (just one eye looking a bit more upwards) cause eyelids to be droopy, making you look tired? I'm 20 years old.
Sleepy eye: It is possible you may a ptosis or lid lag. Check with your doctor or a neurologist.
A friend has a droopy eyelid and the Opthamologist has said he has a mass behind his eye and needs to have an MRI. Does this mean it is a tumor that likely needs to operated on or radiated? Could their be some other mass less serious?
Your friend's: Doctor will likely be able to give him more information after the MRI results are available and the rest of the work up is complete. It would be difficult to try to answer this without the information that his evaluation will provide.
I woke up this morning with drooping eyelid in my left eye. I have been having headaches on and off, although I am not having one right now.
Ptosis: Sounds like ptosis (a weakness of the levator muscle in the eylid) Headaches suggestive of inflammatory process. Bells palsy can look similar but it is seldom isolated only to the eyelid. Have your situation evaluated by MD. Your condition is not normal and could have other causes
My right eye has been droopy for a few months now. Noticed it one day and it never went back to normal. Should I be worried? Wear contacts. S allergie
See ophthalmology: A new onset droopy eye needs further evaluation. See an ophthalmologist.
Ptosis: Blepharoptosis or just ptosis refers to excessive drooping (>1.5mm) of the eye lid below the limbus (outer edge of pupil). Aponeurosis (separation of lid muscle from insertion) is most common. Myogenic or neurogenic such as horner's syndrome (third nerve palsy) is also common. There are other causes as well. If this something new, consult your doc. Good luck.See 3 more doctor answers

Can a lot of excessive time being in front of a tv screen cause droopy eyelids? If yes, can it be treated in some way? I'm only 20 years old.
No: There is no functional difference between tv viewing and video screen viewing such as on a computer. If there were a relationship causing droopy eyelids, we would be in the middle of an epidemic. You are young to have the older age eyelid type of drooping, so best to get a quick check with your ophthalmologist to determine why this has occurred and to recommend remedies.
