imbalanced eyesight

hello everyone. my son is 21 and he has those imbalanced eyesight.
left eye is slightly smaller than the right. his vision is kindof poor as well since he wears graded glasses. left one is 3.0 and right one is 2.5
i am really worried about his eye. maybe someone could consult me how to make it corrected..
in the picture hes wearing contacts. as u can see hes looking straight at the camera but seems kinda odd as well.

It looks as though your son may have mild ptosis or drooping of his left eyelid.  This can make the eye appear smaller, though it really is not.  Ptosis can often be surgically corrected.

Please google or Google-image the word ptosis for photos and information.

Second, it's not clear in the photo, but has he ever been told that he has a slight strabismus, in which the eyes do not point perfectly in the same direction?  It could just be something about the camera angle, though.

Third, these issues--and your son's corrective lenses--are things that he and you should see an ophthalmologist (not an optometrist) to talk about.

I beg to differ but a good optometrist can diagnosis all these conditions. Optometrists are the experts on binocular vision testing and refractive problems.
