Need Face to Face Consultation with an Oculoplastic Surgeon
You require an in-person consultation with a board-certified, fellowship trained Oculoplastic Surgeon -- but from your photos you like a healthy young man, possibly with very mild Ptosis. Your symptoms suggest mild dry eye in the right eye following LASIK surgery. You should be evaluated by your LASIK surgeon or other Ophthalmologist for this possibility. Ptosis surgery carries a risk of worsening of dry eye which is a concern for a prior LASIK patient. Best of luck!

Ptosis of right eye
Even with all the pictures it is difficult to assess without seeing you in person. It appears to be subtle, but if it is bothering you then you would need a consultation with an oculoplastic specialist. Because of your dry eyes which is temporarily(hopefully) worsened from the refractive surgery you would need to be conservative with any eyelid procedures as to not worsen the dry eyes.
