It would depend on your history, any visual symptoms or any other medical problems. Make sure to see an eye Dr for a complete eye exam and examination of your retina, extraocular motion and cornea. If your eye is normal, it may be a problem with the muscles that control eye movement and eyelid mobility.

As a neurologist, would address a recent change in the appearance of facial asymmetry, as a new nerve disorder. So, a larger eye opening on one side might be a facial nerve issue, or smaller on one side, a Horner's phenomenon. Hard to say what is occurring in absence of direct visualization. Maybe, see neurologist, or we could do virtual consult (www.connect@healthtap.com)
