Only eye lid turning blue is unsual. Is it only one eye lid or both? Do u have any problems with vision?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
It’s along the crease of both eyelids. I have no vision problems and I’ve just had an eye test which was absolutely normal. When it happens it looks like I’m wearing blue eyeshadow but i have nothing on my eyes

I really don't think of any condition causing such a discoloration of eyelid. There are veins on the eyelids which drains fluid, if there are prominent (which is normal) can lead to such discoloration.

Can u upload a picture please.

This is not the best picture as this is when it is starting to disappear again

Thanks for sending the picturw. It does look discolored. I will not be worried much. It is likely due to venous drainage. As long as there are no major eye or vision problems, you can stay assured.
