    No, stress can't cause droopy eyelids. Droopy eyelids or ptosis is caused by the malfunction, abnormalities or trauma of levator muscle and nerve, inflammation or lesions of the eyelids. People can't control their eyelid, because the muscle is not strong enough to do so. Depression is an emotional discomfort which is likely to affect endocrine system but not the nerves or muscles.
