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

The axis has to do with a slight astigmatism you have. Your corneas are not perfect spheres.

Residual Erosion : Often this complaint comes from some type of issue with residual erosion or severe dryness.
