Often Allergies: Puffy lower eyelids can be from various causes. One of the most common is ocular allergies. Do your eyes itch? Allergies are more common than every and are particularily bad this year in pennsylvania. As a first step you may want to consider trying otc Patanol (olopatadine) twice a day. If that doesn't work it may be worth seeing an eyelid specialist.
