We are all a little lopsided.
We all have some excess skin on our upper eyelids, that extra skin bunched up when our eyes are open is what stretches out and allows them to close. That skin tends to fold differently on each eye and can cause some asymmetry. Look around at your friends and you will see that no one's eyes are exactly symmetric. When you look closely you will see many asymmetries that you never noticed before - and that's the just the point. There were there and you never noticed them. Which is the same way others see you.

The right side of our body rarely matches the left. Our ears are different, our eyes are different, you are just focusing on your eyes. As to how to even them out, an upper blepharoplasty to remove the excess skin can even them out. I recommend seeing a properly trained plastic surgeon in your area for their opinion.
