In brief: Ptosis

A drooping eyelid is called ptosis and can be caused by a wide number of things.
If this is a new onset problem, you should see your eye doctor soon in order to determine the cause of the problem.

In brief: Many causes

Drooping eyelids can be caused by aging and drooping eyelid skin, sagging eyebrows, stretching of the levator muscle ( lifting muscle of eyelids) or more serious systemic problems.
Consult your ophthalmologist to determine the cause then choose an oculoplastic surgeon for the correction.

In brief: If this is new,

You should have it evaluated.
There are multiple possible causes. Start with your family doctor, and he/she can see whether you need a referral to an ophthalmologist.
