Bulging eye and eyelid retraction: what could it be?
You would need to have a consultation with an oculoplastic specialist to do a thorough evaluation. But the most common reason is an overactive thyroid condition. But you will need a complete work up and probable CT scan to find the definitive cause.

From the photographs you do seem to have some asymmetry of the eyes. A lid and orbital exam would be most helpful to answer your questions. You may have myopia, a natural cause of axial growth of the eyes during teenage years, or you might have thyroid related problems. It is impossible to determine from photographs. I would recommend seeing and Oculoplastic specialist in your area so that you get accurate answers from an experienced physician who knows what to look for on examination. Best wishes.
