Yeah, it is something very correctable with surgery. It's just tough because I know most parents would like for it to be corrected ASAP to avoid the stares and questions from the less tactful people.
One of my cousins had something wrong with a muscle in her eye (too long or too short, don't remember) which caused one of her eyes to look droopy, her eyelid was always halfway down. Fortunately she was able to get that corrected at around 6 months.
Anyway, congrats on becoming at aunt! (you are female, right?) It's very exciting to watch them grow up! Hehe, we joke that I'm my 5 month old niece's "favorite aunt", because I'm her only aunt.
