My eyes are fairly small for my face. I'm wondering if there is surgery that can make them look bigger. I'm not Asian, no anatomical problems, just really small eyes.

There is surgery that can make non-Asian eyes appear bigger
There is surgery that can make non-Asian eyes appear bigger and change the position of the crease which is commonly done to change the shape of the eye. It’s important to have it look natural so it doesn’t look like the patient’s had surgery. Be sure to visit a board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon as they are experts in the delicate anatomy of the eyes.
Blepharoplasty will help small eyes appear larger
The eyes themselves will not be made bigger. There are blepharoplasty surgeries performed to make the eyes more open and less tired looking, which will make them appear bigger.
Your eyes can be made bigger
It depends on what is making your eyes appear small. This is usually due to ptosis, and a levator advancement can open them up wider if that is the problem. If it is just extra skin or your brows weighing down the eyelids, then you could either undergo a blepharoplasty or browlift depending on the problem.

Without photographs, it's difficult to give a more specific answer. Eyelid surgery makes the eye area appear more youthful by removing excess skin or fat, and tightening tissues. Blepharoplasty, upper eyelid ptosis repair, & brow lift surgery may also make the eyes appear larger or bigger too. Speak with an eyelid plastic surgeon who can perform a comprehensive evaluation and provide an appropriate solution for you.

Making eyes look larger
Without your photograph , it is difficult to give you an accurate answer; however, we have many examples of patients whos eyes now look bigger after brow lift and upper blepharoplasty. This is because of the upper eyelid and brow can crowd and otherwise beautiful eye. These procedures bring out natural beauty.
If the problem is upper eyelid droopiness, causing small appearing eyes, then that can be corrected. If the problem is the lower lids, then that cannot predictably be lowered.
Browlift can enhance appearance of eyes
Depending on the condition of your upper face and brows, you may consider a browlift to enhance the appearance of your eyes. By raising the brows, the eyes can appear larger, especially is there is some degree of brow drooping causing heaviness at the upper lid area. A consultation with a plastic surgeon would help to clarify whether this is a suitable option to address your particular facial aesthetic concerns.
Surgery to Create Larger Eyes
It’s not unusual for patients to want larger eyes. Large eyes are considered provocative and very attractive.
In some cases, surgical intervention can make the eyes look larger, but the type of surgery depends on the characteristics of the eye. Blepharoplasty, brow lifts and ptosis repairs all have the potential to make the eyes look larger under the right circumstances. Without a physical exam or pictures, it’s impossible to know what options are available for any particular patient.
