    My eye is swollen. I woke up this way; earlier it was swollen from the top right and made my eyebrow look like if i had raised it. Later it went down a bit, but then my lower lid got swollen. A few weeks ago I was cutting some cardboard and felt something hit my eye. It became swollen in the lower lid right away then a few hours later it went away. The next day it came back, then went away. Now my eye is a tiny bit swollen, what is it? how can i get rid of it.

    I think you need to get to an eye doctor ASAP because you'll probably need special eye drops that are prescription only.
    Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
    I have to agree with Ms. Tracy. It sounds like you are having very significant and unexplained inflammation involving your eyes which is a very good reason to get a full examination by an ophthalmologist.
