Extra skin over one eye?

Hi, I have this extra skin over my right eye which I do not have on my left eye. This flab of skin causes my right eyelid to fold at the wrong place (meaning, a little lower than where my left eyelid folds). It makes my eyes look like they're different sizes and it looks really weird. From far away it may seem as if my eyes are misaligned, but they really aren't! It's just that annoying flab of skin over my eye! I'd REALLY like to fix this problem, please help.

By the way, I am 14 years old and, so, I don't have any signs of aging... No wrinkles or anything. Thanks beforehand. :)

You have probably been spending too much time look at yourself in a mirror. Share your concerns with your parents. If they think its a problem then can take you in to see a Eye MD.

This is NOT a serious answer by a MD !!!
I am 42 years old and I have been having exactly the same problem since my teenage years too. Due to the heaviness of the extra skin all these years I eventually developed vision problems.
