I've had both since I was born. What would I be able to do about it?

Marcus Gun Syndrome

Thank you for sharing your question. Comprehensive evaluation of your problem should be performed in person by an Oculoplastic Surgeon. There might be available treatment for your droopy eyelid.  Good luck,

Marcus Gunn syndrome is also called Jaw winking.

Typically the eyelid is droopy and when the jaw is moving the eyelid.  It is not possible to complete satisfactorily relive the situation.  Surgery is directed at improving the ptosis.  See a fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon for this.
