my left eyelid doesn't close all the way when i look down and tilt my head back. Thought it might be thyroid disease but blood work shows thyroid is normal

Hi Anonymous,

Has this been an issue all of your life?
Ablepharia is the Congenital absence of or reduction in the size of the eyelids. This could apply to one or both eyelids. However, if this isn't something that you've had since birth, then has your doctor looked into it further? Perhaps nerve damage?

Please keep us posted,
