I had a chemical infection 8yrs back in my eye.Now i feel something in my eye, when the lid touches to the upper/lower part in the eye. What is that ?

Adhesion?: I assume you mean a chemical burn 8 years back. Chemical burns, particularly the more severe ones, can damage the eye membrane (conjunctiva) and cause scarring. Sometimes the area of scarring and repair tissue forms adhesions (gets stuck to) a part of the covering eyelid. These develop very slowly because the eyelid moves so much. Its worth having an eye doctor take a look. ...Read more

May need to clarify: I am not exactly sure what you mean by this question, so you might to clarify it.

Pingueculum: The pingueculum is a normal structure the eye makes for protection at the open space on either side of the corneal. It is poorly vascularized, so when the eye gets red for any reason, it stands out because it looks pale compared to the redness around it. This is normal and not a problem. ...Read more

Lips have always been swollen in the morning, but now they continue throughout the day. Also have bloated stomach and red eyes in the morning. ?

Red Eyes/Swollen Lip: You may well have a hidden food allergy or a gluten sensitivity. I would make an appointment with your doctor and discuss your symptoms with a focus on identifying the underlying cause of the sensitivity. If it is a gluten sensitivity, this can be approached by adjusting your diet, as can a hidden food allergy by documenting what you eat and narrowing down the offending food(s). Good luck! ...Read more

What : What you describe sounds like a chalazion or commonly known as a stye. Try placing a warm wash cloth on the lid three or four times daily. If the stye does not go away, there are other treatment options and surgical options you may discuss with your ophthalmologist. Styes can also be associated with lid margin disease. Lid margin disease is a common and frequently chronic inflammation of the eyelids. Symptoms include irritation, itching, and, occasionally, a red eye. This condition frequently occurs in people who tend to have oily skin, dandruff, or dry eyes. Bacteria normally reside on the skin, but in some people, they thrive in the skin at the base of the eyelashes. Nearby oil glands may be overactive, causing dandruff-like scales and particles to form along the lashes and eyelid margins, which can cause redness, stinging, or burning. Lid margin disease cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with a few simple, daily hygienic measures, such as the following: at least twice a day, place a warm, wet washcloth over your closed eyelids for a minute. Rewet it as it cools, two or three times. This will soften and loosen scales and debris. More important, it helps liquefy the oily secretions from the eyelids’ oil glands, which helps prevent the development of a chalazion, an inflamed lump in an eyelid oil gland. With your finger covered with a thin, wet washcloth, cotton swab, or commercial lint-free pad, gently scrub the base of the lashes for about 15 seconds per lid. When medications are necessary, they may include: artificial tears (over-the-counter eyedrops) to relieve symptoms of dry eye; antibiotics (oral or topical) to decrease bacteria on the eyelids; and steroids (short-term), to decrease inflammation. Medications alone are not sufficient to control lid margin disease; the application of warmth and detailed cleansing of the lashes daily is the key. ...Read more

Many possibilities: It can be way too many things to list, such as chronic allergies, pterygium, chronic dry eyes, large blood vessels, etc. An ophthalmologist would be able to tell.
