User :   My niece is pregnant and within the past few days has notices a
drooping eyelid,one eye only. What can be causing this. She was
seen by the OB nurse and checked in the ER and nothing was found as a cause. She was advised to see an eye doctor. Can this be
caused by hormonal changes occuring during pregnancy?
Doctor :   Hi,
