Sleeping with eyes half open

My daughter is 11 years old and since she was a toddler she has always slept with her eyes half to 3/4 open, I've never paid much attention to it till I read some stuff about Duane's Syndrome, which said this was a possible symptom. Is this something I should be concerned about or is this something she will grow out of? She does wear glasses and her eyesight is 20/20 in her right eye and 20/380 in her left, she has a astigmatism.  She is also half Asian so she does have the typical slanted Asian eyes.

Hi woofersgirl, how is your daughter doing? Yes, you need to get her evaluated thoroughly with her pediatrician and an eye specialist. How is her general health and how active she is otherwise? Has she been evaluated any time earlier for the same? Here are few links, which you might feel interested to go through -

Take care of her and keep updating on the doctor advice.
