What can I do if my left eye lid is all messed up and it does not look the same as my right eye lid. How can I fix it?

In brief: See an eye doctor

The question is: "why is the eyelid different?" is this something that has been present since birth? Was there trauma to the lid? An infection? Each cause has a different possible treatment.
Depending on what your eye doctor finds, there are several options that may be available to improve the appearance and function of your eyelid.

In brief: Messed up

Droopy lid (ptosis), lid that turns in (entropian), turns out (ectropia), eyelid skin cancers are all possible causes of abnormal lid.
These are all treated surgically.

this also could indicated a neurologic issue. Have your doctor check it out and refer you if needed.
