What can be done about droopy eyelids?
Ask the doctor Q. My eyelids have become droopy. Is this something I should be concerned about? A. Droopy eyelids, known as ptosis, are often a normal occurrence of aging. The skin over your eyelids loses its elasticity as you grow older, and the muscles that raise your eyelids weaken. These factors result in a gradual drooping of the eyelids.
