If the drooping eyelid is blocking the eye, then it could cause a serious vision problem called amblyopia or lazy eye. Look for a pediatric ophthalmologist who will diagnose the degree & cause of drooping, and rectify it surgically, if necessary. Your child is 8 years, already it is late, get her treated as soon as possible.
