It started two days ago, it was late at night and my eyes were tired, I took a picture of myself and noticed my right eye was droopy, I just thought it was because I was tired so I went to bed. The next morning I looked at my eye again and I noticed it still was droopy, but not as droopy as the previous night, I looked up information online and up came ptosis. I have never noticed my eye being like this before, I never even heard of ptosis until now, it seems like I just got ptosis on my right eye. I was looking at exercises that could help ptosis and stuff, but I am still concerned of how the droopiness could have just came on. How could it come on so quickly? What can I do to help it? What information can you give me? I can't stop thinking about it. Since I have noticed the ptosis it seems like I can feel the droopiness.
There could be many causes including Horner's syndrome and myasthenia gravis among others. You need a full eye exam by an eye MD/ophthalmologist to figure out what is going on. As some causes could be serious, you shouldn't defer this too long. If your pupil on that side is dilated or you have a severe headache or other neurologic symptoms, it becomes more emergent.
