In brief: Eyelid surgery

Yes, there is a way to treat lazy eyelid on most occations.
Some require medications (such in cases of miastenia) others are surgical. You need to see a plastic surgeon or occuloplastic sprecialist.

In brief: Yes

There are two types of "lazy eyelid"; congenital and acquired.
Although they are corrected with different methods, both are correctable. You should consult an oculo-plastic surgeon for proper evaluation and to discuss surgical options.

In brief: Yes

A droopy eyelid is referred to as "ptosis" and there are various surgical methods of correction depending on the underlying cause and the severity of the ptosis.
I suggest consulting with a local plastic surgeon for an in-depth discussion regarding the surgical options, risks, and benefits.
