Scleritis and Heavy eye lid

Just finished with Scleritis and Episcleritis dealing with eye problem since Dec 22 2008.Since using prednison pills and eye drops Combigan to reduce eye pressure in the right eye my eye lids are heavy and hard to keep opened.It seems like the eye muscles can not hold the eye open.How long will the heavy eye last after I finish the prednisone?

You are right the episcloritis and scleritis is gone but have to look down and then open eye lids.Will this go away when I stop the prednisone.Eye lids are so heavy.Nin77ca
