how to make my eyes bigger (preferably without plastic surgery, and excluding the use of makeup)?

I've had 3 or 4 eye infections over the past 6 years. One was from a virus, one was from excessive use of contact lens, two from unexplained/unknown causes. (Apparently the surfaces of my eyeballs are now pockmarked, according to the eye doctors... when viewed through their eye machines, anyway.) My right eye now seems to be smaller than my left eye, and definitely drier, generally - though my left eye is quite dry as well. I'm not sure whether the eyeball itself is smaller, or whether it's just my facial muscles around the eye being accustomed to puckering and squinting because of that eye is drier than the other.
So there is that, and then there is my suspicion that my eyes have become smaller, on the whole, over the past few years. And I suspect that it might have something to do with my regular wearing of spectacles with lens that haven't been updated for about 4 years or so (my degree of myopia seems to have varied over time, and differ between eyes as well), which sort of makes me squint a lot when I wear spectacles. I've worn those spectacles fairly regularly for the past two years or so.
(Or maybe I'm over-speculating...)
My eyes seem to be fairly healthy these days, though. It's been almost 2 years since my last infection (there have been the occasional days of red eyes, but they've been remedied through eyedrops and rest).
How do I make both eyes bigger, with the right eye about the same size as the left eye? I've thought of facial exercises and massages and eye-creams... would those be viable options, do they work? What else could I try? What habits could I form or unlearn, that would help?
(I know I can make them look bigger with makeup etc, and that there is always plastic surgery at the last resort, but I'm not asking about those options now... Sorry if this questions sounds overly picky/fussy about my eyes.)
