I have a swollen numbe earlobe and swollen eyelid/bulging eye - both on right side of face.

Swollen eye, ear lob: Seek medical attention immediately in an ER. Could be infection which on the face affecting the eye is very serious, especially with bulging eye or rarely tumor compressing blood vessels in neck. Thyroid disease can cause bulging eyes but usually no ear lobe issues. Seek immediate attention in ER

My 2 month old right eyelid is swollen with a vein bulge or either knot. It doesn't hurt her. Please help?

My 2 month old right eyelid is swollen with a vein bulge or either knot. It doesn't hurt her. Please help?

Need a photo.: Since you mention there is a vein, it may be a hemangioma, which can occur in this area, but it could be a small cyst or even a stye or chalazion. If there is no redness or drainage of the conjunctiva *white part of the eye) then it seems safe to bring it to the attention of your doctor at her next well child visit.

Ever since I was born my eyes are big and bulge, a doctor has recommended injecting restalyne to my upper eyelids, is this safe?

Ever since I was born my eyes are big and bulge, a doctor has recommended injecting restalyne to my upper eyelids, is this safe?

Don't think so: Restylane (dermal fillers) is not approved to fill the eyelids. I would not recommend this therapy. This product is good to fill the tear trough under the eye but this will not help your bulge.

Thyroid check!: If your eye is bulging it may be your thyroid. See a doc as soon as possible to get it under control and prevent worsening which can become permanent. If the bulges too much the eyelids may not close completely and therefore your eye gets irritated, swollen lids. ...

Bubbling or bulging of a clear film on my sclera when I move my eyes side to side. Also, there's yellowish brown discoloration around iris that seems to be moveable as well under lower eyelid too?

Bubbling or bulging of a clear film on my sclera when I move my eyes side to side. Also, there's yellowish brown discoloration around iris that seems to be moveable as well under lower eyelid too?

Causes of chemosis: Bruce, It looks like you have some fluid that accumulated under the conjunctiva (the clear film covering your sclera) and this is called chemosis. It can be clear, pinkish or yellowish. Is it on both sides? How long has it been there and what were you doing when it started? Is it painful? Have you tried using artificial tears? There are many things that cause this, need more info.

Yes, it can be done: You need to see an oculoplastic surgeon. We deal exclusively with the eyelids and eye sockets and we are ophthalmologists. We typically follow patients with graves eye disease. There are several surgical options for graves patients, including orbital decompression, eye muscle surgery and eyelid surgeries for both eyelid retraction and bagginess. Go to asoprs.

Eyes: There are medical and non medical causes for the eye to appear to bulge. If it has always been this way then, like most people, you may have some facial asymmetry.
