Ptosis and dermatochalasis
You would benefit from surgery to address your heavy upper eyelids and eyebrows.
You have a very difficult problem

Correction of droopy eyelid
It appears that there is excess skin that hangs over the right upper eyelid. There is also a mild amount of excess skin above the left upper eyelid. You may benefit from excision of skin from your upper eyelids (with more skin excised from the right compared to the left). This procedure is called an upper eyelid blepharoplasty. When having your consult, your surgeon will determine if the right eyelid itself is lower than the left. Based on your picture, it appears that both eyelids are droopy, since the distance between your upper eyelid and the light reflex seen on your cornea is about 1-2mm (greater than 2mm is a normal eyelid position). Your surgeon may want to do an additional procedure called a ptosis repair at the same time as the blepharoplasty to give the eyelids a lift as well. I recommend seeing an oculoplastic/oculofacial surgeon.
