    Well, in my opinion, a stroke can cause a droopy eyelid in some degree. So you should be careful about it. In common, there are many causes of droopy eyelids. According to some experts, weak levator muscle, paralysis of some nerves, even injuries such as fracture of the skull bone between eye socket, stroke to eyes and nose can cause droopy eyelids. And droopy eyelid is actually ugly and can make you look unacctractive. So you can just put the teabags in the refrigerator until these become cool, and then just apply them on your eyes to have a cold compresses to treat it. Also, proper and moderate exercise including eye exercise can be effective. Some fish oil can be used too.
