You have bilateral upper eyelid ptosis.

This is not fixed with fillers.  This requires upper eyelid ptosis surgery.  Your upper eyelid sulcus is hollow.  I suspect you need an anterior levator ptosis surgery.  You need a personal assessment by the potential surgeon.  This is not something that can Skype.  There is no substitute for an actual in person consultation.

Best solution for large eyelid?

You have both droopy upper eyelids (ptosis) and hollowness in upper eyelids/brow area. These two factors make the upper lid appear large. See an oculoplastic specialist. You may benefit from eyelid ptosis surgery and/or filler injection. See link and video below.

A drooping eyelid is called ptosis

It does appear that you have ptosis of the upper eyelid. But it appears there are also other subtle differences between the two sides. An experienced eyelid surgeon can help you decide the best course of action.

Large eyes

It appears that you have upper eyelid ptosis on both sides. Your hollow upper lid sulcus is likely a hereditary feature, but may be lessened by ptosis repair. Other factors also produce "large eyes"  - for example myopia/ near-sightedness. Please see an Oculoplastic surgeon in your area for evaluation and discussion of treatment options. I agree with Dr. Steinsapir that filler is not the best answer for your eyelids. Best wishes!
