The eyes function as the door closes to prevent anything from getting hurt as it is coming down.

I would do this test. Disconnect the door from the metal traveler that it’s hooked into by pulling down on the roped lever. Now press the remote and see if the traveler goes all the way to the opener, or if it stops near the door.

If it traveled all the way, the “up” force needs to be increased, or the door is binding and needs to be adjusted.
If it stopped near the door the open stop (limit switch)needs to be adjusted.

Either way, you should call a door company to service it.
