Hooded Eyelid on One Eye? (photo)

Last night my friend and I were looking at our eyes and we both had standard. This morning I woke up and when I looked one was standard and one had a fold on it and I was wondering if its temporary or if it's gonna stay like that, or what I could do to fix it? What exactly it is???

These little differences are "normal" and vary during the course of a day, and from day to day. You have beautiful eyes!! I'd suggest you leave them alone. This might sound heretical, but plastic surgery is not the answer for everything.

I think your eyes are beautiful as is... but if the fold really is bothersome, see a local plastic surgeon who can help your review the options for tightening your upper lid skin.  Lasers can help but the results may only be temporizing.

This is an acceptable variant in your upper eyelid anatomy. Each side has slightly differing issues. Best to leave alone.
