I dont know if anyone can help or advise but it started about 6 months ago. Left eye very sore, stinging, dry. Sore doctor, went to optician who said I was Long sighted in my left eye and prescribed me glasses. Eye still bothering me so went back to doctor eventually I was referred to an eye doctor for full examination it said my eyes were dry especially the left.

Now I have noticed in photo's that my eye left droops, I have looked back at old photo's and it has always been smaller but not as much as it is now! It does not cover the pupil but the eyelid is lower than the right. Is this age? Or is this because the eye is sore most of the time? or is it something else?

I have googled droopy eyelid and have now scared myself!:(

The doctors say there is nothing seriously wrong just dry eye in one eye and age creeping up on me.

Any ideas?

Thanks for reading.
