It's all the fault of that stupid contact lense.  
Yesterday one of my contact lenses got stuck under my right eyelid, leading to a comical twenty minutes as I tried everything I could think of to get the stupid thing back out. Finally Dr. Internet suggested pressing down on eyelid gently, feeling out where the contact was hiding, and then rolling the eyeball up there and getting the lense to move back down. I did so and was so happy when the contact popped out, rolled up into a little blob.

Then I go upstairs and look in the mirror and realize my eyes were no longer matching. The one that had the troubled contact had somehow shrank the eyelid muscle (making the eye look much Western - rounder with a more prominent crease) and thus it was no longer symmetrical with the left eye. It was weird. It freaked me out. I spent the next ten minutes obsessively poking and blinking, trying to get my eyes back to their proper shape.

Nothing happened so I gave up and went to sleep, worrying that I'd be ugly forever.

Luckily, when I woke up this morning everything was back to normal. Both my grandmother and my mother have a 'drooping' eye (although Mom's isn't really noticable) so I know it might happen for real someday if the white genetics can't beat it.

Well from what I know one eye is slightly droopier than the other naturally... so don't worry without botox i think it will happen to all of us at some point :P

sometimes my eyes do that! well, like, i get an extra crease in one eyelid? or i lose my crease? it's really weird. i usually just have to hope it goes away overnight but i can feel the extra/lack of crease while it's there and it feels icky augh! hahaha
