Thank you for your question about your eyelids and ptosis.

  • Your photos show that you have severe drooping (ptosis) of the upper lids,
  • usual treatment is blepharoplasty to tighten the levator palpebrae, the muscle that lifts the upper lids,
  • your eyes seem different because ptosis is worse on the left side,
  • contact lenses are a common cause. See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Ophthalmologist for an evaluation and treatment.. Best wishes. Hope this helps!
