In brief: Depends
If both eyes are drooping or one droops over a short time frame, there could be some pathologic event causing this and you should see your ophthalmologist.
If both are drooping because of older age heaviness of the upper lids and brow, this is probably cosmetic and you can decide if you want it corrected.
