Eyelid Slightly drooping

I have a slight difference in my eyelids...i.e. one eyelid is drooping only slightly.. When I move my eyeball into the centre of my head it rubs off my eyeli, which is not painful but can be very annoying. I had PRK in the eye 4 weeks ago but I think from all the pulling down my eyelid (not very hard) that I did to alleviate dry eye symptoms I may and pulled it too many times that it has stayed permanent.

Can anybody tell me how long the levator muscle in the eye takes to return to normal after stretching it ? Or is this something I have to live with

Slightly Concerned.

Re: Eyelid Slightly drooping

I've heard 8 weeks or longer for surgery induced ptosis. A family member of mine had it after eye surgery. He's didn't go away and he had surgery to correct it. Most of it anyway, it still bothers him when he gets tired.

If yours is slight then it will probably correct itself - like waiting for a pulled muscle or tendon to heal.
