Good luck: No good reason. But when you hit your 40's, you'll be grateful you can read with that eye without glasses. If this nearsightedness was not present when you were younger, then it's cataract.

Depends how much...: If you look closely, you will see almost everyone's face has some asymmetry. It is more prominent in some people than others. Many people have asymmetry in brow height, cheek prominence, jaw line, etc. If it is mild, it is probably normal. If you are concerned about it, bring it up to your doctor for discussion.
