Eye Strain Associated with Ptosis?

The thing is, my ophtamologist thinks I have good levator function in my left eye, but when the eyes are relaxed/droopy, the left eye droops more than the right eye. When the eyen open in a "surprised" look, they look nearly the same. The thing is for some reason I IMMEDIATELY feel eye tigthness as soon as I open my eyes to the "normal" gaze. So, could a ptosis NOT related to levator be causing eye strain? Because I know that normal eye strain is typically related to eyelid ptosis.

Ptosis with good levator function is possible

you appear young so congenital ptosis is my first inclination, but if your levator function is good, then you may have a levator dehiscence. maybe traumatic? this is something yur ophtho can address. good luck
