In brief: Yes

Drooping eyelids can interfere with your periferal field or even straight ahead vision depending on the amount of droop.
A visual field can determin and quantify this.

In brief: Yes

If the drooping covers the pupil it will affect the visual field.
See your eye doctor for a visual field examination and to determine the cause of the ptosis.
