But eyelid miscarriage, which occurs when tissues begin to relax, is a problem that can occur naturally in children. It also occurs in those who experience accidents, trauma, strokes and brain problems. In addition, the use of contact lenses can cause skin allergies and cause the eyelid to fall. For a slight age-related problem of eyelid miscarriage, you can get positive results from eyelid sagging with some exercises. So how is eyelid massage performed? Here are those exercises…
