Are my eyes severely deformed?
There are multiple factors contributing to your appearance including droopy upper eyelids (ptosis) and excess skin along with antimongloid slants (the lateral corner of eye is lower than normal). See an oculoplastic specialist for evaluation.
Down slanted eyes
Thanks for sharing your question. I can appreciate your concern.
Your bony eye sockets seem to have a side downward slant. Ideally the sides should be 15 degrees higher than the inner corners of the eyes. The mass is just your frowning muscles bulging with the action of the muscle. Once again the shape of your bone could be the reason.
modification may require extensive reconstructive surgery, that in the majority of cases is only reserved for major craniofacial deformities. You may address the bulge of your eye with botox.
Finally, make sure that you have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon specialized in craniofacial surgery and box osteotomies.

Yes, this appears to be some form of blepharophimosis syndrome.
This includes ptosis, heaviness of the eyelids, blepharophimosis, narrowness of the width of the eyelid opening, and a feature you do not have, epicanthus inversus. These can run in families or they can be sporatic. I recommend seeing an oculofacial surgeon in your area for a personal assessment. Most health insurance covers these sorts of issues.
