I Have a Strange Issue with my Right Eye Ball and Its Vertical Position ?

I have a strange issue with my right eye ball and its vertical position. My eye ball keeps on changing its vertical distance from my lower eyelid which cause asymmetry and thats y people think am a squint. My lower eyelid too changes its shape . This usually happens when am relaxed my right eyeball and eyelid lose their symmetry. By if i perform some eye exercises they regain their symmetric shape . Am confused ?

Eye exercises do not change the shape of the eye. Sometimes eyelid swelling may change the way the eye looks. Post photos for further help.

Consider a thorough eye exam and work-up for your condition by consulting a Board Certified Ophthalmologist.

I suggest that you consider consulting an ophthalmologist with a special interest in pediatric ophthalmology.  This type of ophthalmologist has a special interest in eye alignment and will have the appropriate tool to understand and measure your concerns.
