Is 16 Too Young for Eyelid Surgery?
I am 16 years old and within the past month or so my left eyelid had dropped significantly lower then my right eyelid. It was not like this 3 months ago (I have compared pictures) and it lays just above the pupil.
The difference is noticable by others, teachers have talked to me about 'giving them mean/annoyed looks' when I am not. It is only one eye, and because it has dropped fast I fear it may block my vision soon. Is there a reason why this happened or how can it be fixed?
