Puffy eye lid: In most cases, puffy, tender and red swelling of your upper and/or lower eyelid is usually an indication there is an infection. Sometimes, the swelling can be accompanied by discharge in the corner of your eye. Depending on the severity of your pain, you may or may not want to seek medical attention immediately.
