This demonstrates "ptosis" whether a recent change or occurrence or genetic/family derived needs to be addressed in an IN PERSON visit to an opth or PS..

Stye and eyelid ptosis

Your left upper eyelids seems to be droopy (ptosis). There may also be swelling present which could be due to stye or blepharitis. See an oculoplastic specialist for evaluation.
