Dear softcome,

It is important for you to see an eyeMD. There are systemic conditions in which the eyelid becomes droopy.  You should undergo a complete history and physical.

Thank you so much for having all the above posted.
  Again, it is a Friday night and no chance of getting an appt. I have had a weepy eye for about 2 months now. I have been given antibiotic eye drops twice and they have not worked. I bought new eye glasses after an eye exam about 2 months ago. I also have a thyroid problem for the past 10 yrs. And had major brain surgery for an aneurysm back in 1989. Tonight I was having major issues yet again with the same eye. Took a closer look and found one eye to be significantly smaller than the other. I called this day for an appointment and they can't see me until August 1st. Do you feel it to be okay to wait this long? I greatly appreciate any advise.
