My rat has an eye more closed that the other

Today I realised that one of my rat's eyes was slightly more closed that the other, I've had her for a short period of time so I'm kinda new at this, I don't know if I should worry or not. It has been like this for the whole afternoon.

My rat has had a very similar thing since she was born. First thread I made when I got here was about it. I’m pretty sure at least with my rat it’s just a birth defect. She closes her eye partly a lot and has porphyrin around her eye sometimes. Keep an eye on her though. If you want to check out my thread for answers sooner then it called “what is wrong with my rats eye” for me it’s in the recommended reading.
Looks like my rat. As long as she shows no other signs of a problem you should be fine. If she is otherwise happy and healthy just leave her alone.
Your welcome. Also I did not say it earlier but welcome to the rat forum. Don’t be shy to ask anything else I have found that this is a very welcoming forum.
