David Attenborough has never confirmed the exact reason that his eye closes, but there is a chance it could be unilateral ptosis. This is also referred to as ďpathologic droopy eyelid.Ē It can come on as a result of trauma, a medical disorder, or age. It is likely David Attenboroughís is a result of the latter. It is a very common condition for people in their older age.

Some fans were concerned that David had had a stroke and his left eye closing was a result of brain damage. This, however, is unlikely, as David has never addressed whether heís had a stroke.

At 94-years-old, David Attenborough is still remarkably healthy and active. Travelling the world to do big presenting gigs might take it out of anyone, but David seems relatively unphased by the job at hand.

He got my mum a birthday card for her 40th.

I send an animal card I knew she'd like (a holographic tiger) to his address with a SAE and a little letter, and he was kind enough to sign it and send it back

It looks like a little hand has punched him In the eye or something, something he may be used to out in the animal world.
