This : This type of swelling occurs in the clear covering over the white part of the eye. This clear layer is called the conjunctiva, and it has cells that produce tears, mucous and oils to keep the surface of the eye moist when these cells get over-stimulated, they can over-produce fluids, and this fluid can get trapped between the conjunctiva and the sclera (the white layer), so a bubble forms. Usually, this bubble will go away as you get better, but if it is irritating, or if it lasts longer, you should see an ophthalmologist (optometrists are not medical doctors, and most cannot prescribe medications) who can prescribe an anti-allergy drop such as patanol, Pataday or bepreve (bepotastine besilate). I often find that this is not sufficient, and a short course of steroid eye drops works better. These must be used with care, under the guidance of your doctor. One last note, please don't press on that bubble, or put anything else in your eye! this can make it more irritated, or cause other problems. ...Read more

Dry eye and more: This may represent a combination of conditions such as dry eye, blepharitis / rosacea, and allergic conjunctivitis. Tearing in response to air movement usually indicates reflex tearing. That is, the eye is on the borderline of being dry, and the wind will put it over the edge and the eye tears in response. Itching is more consistent with allergy, and spicy food with blepharitis / rosacea. ...Read more
