Spent all day crying yestrdy .I woke up today with my lower eyelids puffy swollen and crusty, and a little itchy..Can excess crying cause pink eye?

Eyelid edema: Following intense emotional situations with crying, runny nose, and lots of wiping eyelids and nose secretions, the eyelids often swell, eyes look red, and the ocular surface may be slightly irritated. Mucous is generated by the eye in response to the irritation. Sometimes contamination can be introduced into the eye with all the wiping. Not usually an infection results, but if worse, see eye doc. ...Read more

Give it a few days: This is a common therapy for what you describe. I would give it a few days to look better before asking your doctor to reassess the situation. If you begin to notice a crusty discharge from the eyes or the redness begins to extend beyond its initial area call back earlier. ...Read more

I've always had puffy lower eyelids in the morning, but now my upper eyelids get puffy too. Is this normal?

Maybe: Puffiness of the lower and upper lids can result from fluid retention, sometimes worse in the morning due to lying horizontally while sleeping. When you stand up, gravity pulls the fluid down. The most common cause of "puffy" lower lids is fat prolapsing forward mimicking swelling. The upper lid skin can stretch and become redundant with age appearing swollen. ...Read more

Stye: It sounds like an acute blocked oil gland of the eyelid, or stye. Discontinue contact lens wear and begin a hot compress routine to help bring the backed up secretions to a head. A gentle massage of the area after a 10' hot compress helps. Repeat 2 to 4 times daily. Cleansing the lashes and eyelids with diluted baby shampoo removes bacteria which aides recovery. After a few days , if no help c md. ...Read more

What're the problems surrounding a lower eyelid lift?

Generally Safe: Main concerns relate to under-correction (not enough fat/skin removed or muscle not tightened adequately) or over-correction (too much fat/skin removed). The result may be less improvement than desired with under-correction versus hollowing, rounding or a pulled-down appearance with over-correction.

Much more serious problems such as muscle injury or vision loss are very rare, fortunately. ...Read more

Open and drain: if it is bothering you it can be opened and drained or removed in a five minute office procedure. Otherwise there is no harm in leaving it alone. I assume you have used hot compresses four times daily as well as a mild antibiotic drop at acute onset already. If not, that is still worth a one week trial. ...Read more

Probably Stye: If this occurred rather suddenly, it probably is a stye, which is a blocked oil gland of the eyelid.

Most of these styes respond to very warm compresses 3-4 times/day for 10' followed by gentle massage with a washcloth containing a small amount of baby shampoo.
