Contact lenses have been identified as a contributing factor to premature eyelid drooping. In a recent study of 96 sets of identical twins, researchers found that those who wore contact lenses – both the hard and soft variety – were more likely to experience premature eyelid drooping. How much more likely? 100%. All participants who wore contact lenses experienced a higher level of eyelid ptosis than those who did not, even after factors including sun exposure, smoking, sleeping habits, and stress were taken into account.
