To have one eye closed more than the other consistently, is a sign of 'ptosis'. While this is not something to be alarmed about, it does need an evaluation by your ophthalmologist and he might refer it to a neurologist. There is no urgency to treat this condition as long the vision is perserved (as mentioned by your doctor who tested her eyes).

Please contact me if you need any clarifications.
