Puffy Under One Eye Only
Woke up with one eyelid swollen and under both eyes has puffiness. Under eye puffy is worse in the eye that the lid is swollen in ?
Possible stye: Styes are common and usually imply less than perfect eyelid hygiene. Hot compresses are the single best treatment initially along with vigorous lid cleaning using warm water and terry washcloth. Compresses should be as hot as tolerable and at least 3-4x/day. If your eye is also red and draining you may have conjunctivitis; need a topical antibiotic drop. See your Eye Doctor if not better 48hrs ...Read more

Puffy Eyes: Puffy or swollen eyes can be caused by fluid retention, stress, allergies, hormone changes, and other factors. Other times we get puffy eyes after sleeping.

My bottom eye lid is swollen. No redness only slight discomfort. Should I be concerned? I use ointment in my bottom eyelid at night for dry eye.
Possible concern: Dry eye is common, can respond well to ointment but does not cause eyelid swelling. Is the tenderness at one spot or diffuse? Is there a palpable nodule? Is this short term or has it been there awhile? Try using very warm washcloths 4-5 times a day on the lid and if it disappears, it was likely a stye. If still present after 4-5 days, have an ophthalmologist look at it. ...Read more
Several causes: Eyelid twitching is very common, and often occurs from stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, and overuse of stimulants such as caffeine or decongestants. Local eye irritation can also add to this, such as dry eye, allergy, and blepharitis (eyelid infection, inflammation). Eyestrain and excessive reading can contribute. Try reducing the stress/stimulant factors, and get an eye exam for the other causes. ...Read more
Im short sighted, i have glasses. Got blurred vision in both my eyes. Have pain in only one eye, (crease of eyelid/feels like its above the eye) ?

Intermittent angle closure can occur in far sighted individuals and requires attemtiom ...Read more

I am under 30 and have the worst baggy puffy dark circles under my eyes. Would a lower blepharoplasty help?
Puffy Eyelid Bags: Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is still the treatment of choice for lower eyelid bags (fat). Unless the dark circles are a result of shadowing from the puffy lower lids, they will not go away with blepharoplasty. It is not unusual to consider lower bleph in your young adult life as the problem is typically hereditary and shows up earlier in life. Good news is that it is very rare to need it again. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers
