In brief: Eyelid drooping

The most common cause of eyelid drooping is related to age.
Chonic inflammation of the lids and eyes can also cause eyelid to droop to protect the eye. Previous trauma or neurologic issues can also contribute to eyelid droopiness. To determine the cause, you need to see an eye doctor.

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.
