I'm 28 and not using any drops.
Everything is fine, nothing is swollen, or red.
I do take medication for thyroid, not sure if it makes any difference.
Many thanks for your detailed reply.

The thing is that my eyes aren’t sticky; it just feels like that the muscles aren’t strong enough to open them.
That’s why sometimes if I try really hard (without using my fingers) I do manage to open them but then I get a headache.
Does that make any sense?
