There are a variety of conditions that can cause eyelid problems; diabetes, stroke and tumors to name a few. The most common cause of drooping eyelids is aging without the involvement of any disease. Some drooping eyelids are due to allergies. Steroids or antihistamines may be able help treat. Determining if the condition affects one or both eyelids helps in identifying the cause of the eyelid problem.
