I don't think so. Is it recent on sent or since birth. Kindly get it evaluated.

Botox does the opposite thing. In other words if an eyelid is retracted, Botox can produce drooping of the lid. Surgery is only way to correct this. Be very sure in getting this done cause even a little inaccuracy in the surgery can result in the eye not closing properly, which is much more serious.
