Eye size asymmetry, one eye bulging
Your right eyeball appears more bulging than left eye. It could be due to many factors. The left upper eyelid also appears more droopy. Best to see an oculoplastic specialist for evaluation.
Thank you for posting your question and photos. I'm glad that you had an Ophthalmologist check your eyes. A CT scan is probably the next step to check the bones and other structures around the eyes. I'm sure your neurologist will order this test. Good luck!
Change in eyelid position
I don't think a neurologist will help you. I would see an oculoplastic surgeon - this is an ophthalmologist who specializes in the eyelids and orbit. In the pictures, it appears you have asymmetry between the two eyes with regards to eyelid position. This can be caused by thyroid disease or a change in the position of the actual eyeball (one eye either pushed out or sunken in). I would have your thyroid checked. I would also make sure they check that you don't have a chronic sinus condition that can lead to a gradual sinking in of the eyeball. An oculoplastic surgeon will perform a thorough exam and determine the position of your eyeballs in the sockets and if your eyelid position is normal. Good luck!
