Causality:

Aging, Congenital droopy eyes, Nerve disorder, eye muscle dysfunction, adult onset eyelid drooping, eye injury & Dermatochalasis (connective tissue disease where the skin on the lower and the upper eyelid loses elasticity of the skin and so it hangs down in folds and it starts giving the impression of droopy eyes).
