You may have benefit to consult a neurologist. Certain neurological problems may cause a difference in the APPEARANCE of your eyelids ...HORNER'S syndrome affects the muscle control or tension doctor eyelid.The right might be lower than left due to this and thus may appear larger.

So this would seem one possible scenario.

There is a complex loop of nerve connections that lead to the control of the upper eyelid. There are several ways that this complex neurological symptom may occur....

So consult a neurologist as your next step is my advice.
