    Well, yes, anxiety can lead to eyelid ptosis. As we know that eyelid ptosis is often caused by high blood pressure, depression. So when you are anxious, it will definitely make your blood pressure become high. And then, it can affect your eyes, and turn to eyelid ptosis. So you need to control your own emotion to avoid it. Also, there are also many other symptoms caused by anxiety, including depression, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, insomnia, headache. So just be careful about it.

    Yes, the anxiety will cause your ptosis because of the nerves fluctuations. When you have the great move on the mood, you will find that your eyes will be affected too. The skin will be affected too. Thus, you'd better keep the calm state to keep the health in both body and eyes. If you have the anxiety, you should use the hand to smooth the skin around the eyes to avoid the ptosis.
