What's happening to my eye?
Your right eye has slight ptosis (drooping) of the upper eyelid. This can be treated with mild "tightening" of the upper lid. The lower lid has slight laxity. You may be able to treat this with "exercise", or it can be tightened also. Consult a plastic surgeon.
Asymmetry of the eyes
You may have normal asymmetry, but it would be best to see an oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation. Thyroid problems and sinus problems may cause asymmetry that takes place over months to years. A thorough evaluation would give you peace of mind about your eyes. Best wishes.
Nothing is wrong with your eyes
as having mild asymmetries are completely normal as in your case. But if your lids are encroaching on your pupils, you could have some ptosis and insurance covered procedures can help resolve that... but still perfect symmetry is nearly impossible to achieve so be cautious about pursuing surgery.
