Yes: Cool compresses can help a lot. Make sure your eyelid skin is well moisturized to ensure it appears youthful. Artfully applied foundation and shadow can help a lot. If you have persitent puffiness around the eyes please check your thryoid status. Finally, if strongly desired, consider a cosmetic evaluation.

What does it mean if my babys eyes seem cloudy and watery?

Blocked tear duct: If you are describing a intermittent mucousy film over the eye then it is probably a result of a blocked tear duct (lacrimal stenosis). The tears can't drain from the eye and secretions build up and sometimes get infected. If the cornea seems cloudy this may be a more serious problem requiring the attention of an ophthalmologist.

No limit: There are strong protective reflexes which cause blinking to protect the eye. Given sufficient will power, someone might keep the eye open indefinitely - something done for religious reasons by some. Be happy that your eyes blink to spread the tears and keep the eye healthy.
