You need to be evaluated by a cranial facial surgeon with a complete medical workup. Seek University PS to evaluate you.
Complicated eye problem in NF
You have a complicated problem or problems. The eyelid ptosis can be addressed separately by ptosis surgery but it cost of worse ability to close your eye. Proptosis may be reduced depending on what's causing it. The state of the eye itself is also important in making a decision. See an oculoplastic specialist.
