Well here I am, OCD and all, freaking out over a new health anxiety. Please don't say anything to scare me, cause it won't take much...lol.
 
I just went to the eye doctor one week ago yesterday. I got a good exam, however I did tell him about my fears over one pupil looking smaller than the other. He told me everything looked fine.
 
This morning I woke up and one eyelid was lower than the other. All day I have been checking the mirror and asking my poor husband to check my eye. He thinks it was caused from sleeping, although I didn't sleep on that side.
 
Does anyone have this and it's nothing??? Thanks!!!

Well I hope the reason no one answered was not because they thought it was something scary.

Looking back on old pictures, the left eyelid looks a bit lower there too. I just had a complete eye exam on 9/15, so I will TRY not to keep worrying and stressing.

Nothing scary here, I promise.  I've had one pupil that is larger than the other for as long as I can remember...and it's normal!  I've also got a "lazy" eyelid, one that kind of hangs lower than the other and I've also had that forever...pictures to prove it.  If you already had an eye exam and were told that everything was fine, than there's really nothing for you to worry about.  Just some of those little quirks that all of us have but that don't mean anything bad!  Hope you feel better!
