What could be the cause of eye pain/swelling/tearing?

What could be the cause of eye pain/swelling/tearing?

See an eye doctor: Pain and swelling are hallmarks of inflammation. It is difficult to differentiate inflammation from eye infections (which are potentially blinding). See an eye doctor immediately. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to treat. ...Read more

Will tyndall effect smoothen after 1 to 2 weeks of juvederm treatment in eye tear troughs?It looks very lumpy & bumpy, worst then before juvederm used

Will tyndall effect smoothen after 1 to 2 weeks of juvederm treatment in eye tear troughs?It looks very lumpy & bumpy, worst then before juvederm used

Slow improvement: The lumpiness isn't a Tyndall effect, it's poor injection technique. The tear troughs are very difficult to inject properly to get a smooth result. Tyndall is a bluish color to the skin. Both can be improved with Hyaluronidase if you don't want to wait for it to wear off. http://www.omahacosmeticsurgery.com/non-surgical-procedures/injectables/ ...Read more

Afraid of rabies, previously vaccinated. Walking outside on bright, sunny day (no rain). Single drop of liquid fell from tree and lands directly in eye/tear-duct. Couldn't identify source of liquid. Possible bat saliva exposure or being paranoid?

Afraid of rabies, previously vaccinated. Walking outside on bright, sunny day (no rain). Single drop of liquid fell from tree and lands directly in eye/tear-duct. Couldn't identify source of liquid. Possible bat saliva exposure or being paranoid?

Paranoid: The most likely liquid falling from a tree would be water. Did it rain recently? The odds of a bat salivating in a tree on a sunny day is very very rare. Bats like dark places to rest during the day. Also, bats drooling? Also very rare. The saliva from a bat causing rabies comes from a bite, not drool. Also very rare to get rabies through the membranes of the eyes. So, please don't worry. ...Read more
