In 2007 I was checked by an ofthalmologist and he noticed my left eyelid dropping. On 2006 I had lasik surgery (with a few failed attempts at putting the clamps), but I never noticed it before. Most of the day it's difficult to see since I always exercise a bit of strength to keep them raised, but in the moment I relax, it starts to drop and the left eyelid closes before the right one. At the end of day I also feel something inside the eyelid and over the eye, as if the muscle felt really tired.
Possible Ptosis on One Eyelid Appearing Only when Tired?

There are many subtleties to the evaluation of eyelid ptosis, and possible need for ptosis surgery. You need an in-person evaluation.
If you decide to explore this further, I would recommend consultation with an ASOPRS trained Oculoplastics surgeon. You can find one close to you on the ASOPRS dot org website.
