In brief: 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. Exercise will not fix the problem.

In brief: Unlikely

It depends on the cause.
Most cases of drooping eyelids are either due to a nerve/muscle problem or due to excess skin. A drooping eyelid can also be a sign of a more serious problem. You should see an eye doctor to get this evaluated and treated.

In brief: No

Eyelids can droop for many reasons: excessive skin, stretching of the connective tissues that connect the muscles to the structures of the eyelid, abnormalities of the nerves controlling those muscles, or a problem with the way the connective tissues are formed that you are born with.
Unfortunately, excercise won't help. An eye doctor can identify the cause and appropriate treatment is.
