The Shape of the Eyes
We often draw the eyes as symmetrical ovals, and think of them as being mirror images of each other. But as you know, the human face is not symmetrical, nor is the eye itself. Eye shapes vary a great deal, and the shape of the lids will change as the eye moves. When gazing to one side, they can change dramatically. Add a slight turn of the head or move your viewpoint from the center, and the eyes can look very different indeed.
