Facial and lid asymmetry

You have upper lid ptosis and facial bony (orbit) asymmetry with one eye more prominent (proptotic) than the other.  Surgery can be done to improve both problems.  Consult an oculoplastic surgeon.

You have ptosis which usually can be corrected.  I am not sure why the other doctor told you nothing could be done.  I suggest you get another opinion from an Oculoplastic surgeon.

Yes you have facial asymmetry.

However, you also have ptosis.  I suspect that ptosis surgery would make a significant difference for you.  Consider seeing another oculoplastic surgeon.  Not everyone holds the same opinion.  The surgery will not fix your facial asymmetry but it will brighten your appearance considerably.
