My left upper eyelid has been noticeably swollen for a long time, no redness. What could be the causes of this?

It looks as if the eyelid extends higher up on my face then the right side and looks swollen. The underside also seems slightly swollen compared to the right eye. It's bothered me for a while now and has made me very insecure of my appearance.

Swollen eye

Without pictures, there is no way any meaningful diagnosis can be made. You should see your eye physician.
