One of my eyes has a downward slope and is higher than the other. Noticed it in a baby picture. I am 49.

The real issue?: Nobody's face is perfectly symmetric. If you have a strabismus that's been missed so far, consider surgery. Stop looking at yourself so closely in a mirror -- it's not going to lead to anything helpful. Good looks in a man is 95% his physical fitness.
