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.

In brief: 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.

A general rule of thumb is that if you notice something new,it is always a good idea to check it out. There are many causes of a droopy lid and a medical work up is frequently needed to determine the exact cause.i would doubt that it is related to you wearing or not wearing glasses
