Eye swelling: .Despite some improvement, I still think a physician or ophthalmologist should examine you for diagnosis and treatment. Since only one eye is involved and there is pain,I'm reluctant to blame allergies or angioedema.. Also associated pain suggests inflammation or a possible eyelid infection.
