It sounds like one of your muscles may need to be tightened through surgery. However, it would be best to see a photo or consult with an oculoplastic surgeon to best assess your needs.

Eyelid asymmetry

Kindly post a photograph for review.  Understand that everyone has facial asymmetry of some degree; that said, you may have a muscle weakness that could be treated by an oculoplastic surgeon.
