Conjunctivitis : It maybe an inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eye. I recommend having a healthcare professional.

Ophthalmology Visit: It is rare to have a constant one sided eye swelling. You must see an Ophthalmologist. There is a condition called Recurrent Erosions or Cogan's Microcystic dystrophy that may do such a thing. Or you may have a lodged foreign body under the upper lid on that eye, which may be a stuck soft contact lens if you wear contact lenses.
