Hi

This may be an infection. A localized eye infection such as blepharitis have to be excluded. Also, a soft tissue infection eg cellulitis involving the side of the face also need to be considered especially if there was history of trauma, redness or open wounds in the area. Also, is there associated eye redness, pain or eye tearing? If these are present, then a localized eye problem is likely. If not, then a nerve related problem such as a cranial nerve III involvement has to be ruled out.

Have you had an assessment with an ophthalmologist? I suggest that you have this assessed by an eye doctor first just to rule out a localized eye problem.
