Can Astigmatism in one eye cause the eyelid to droop? Or does wearing outdated prescription lenses or contacts cause drooping eyelids?

In brief: Perhaps

Of the items listed, the only one that can cause a droopy eyelid is contact lenses, which can cause ptosis from mechanical irritation of the eyelid.

In brief: No

droopy eyelids can cause astigmatism but not the other way around.
You maybe squinting because you are not wearing your prescription. But this would be a voluntary action while drooping of the eyelid would be involuntary.
