May be the tear duct: You do not mention what part of the eye. If it is close to the tear duct, sometimes in newborns and slightly older infants, a tear duct occlusion may cause local swelling to the area.

Depends: There are way too many causes of swollen eyes to list, therefore many different treatments. They are all treated differently. Do not diagnose yourself and chose random over the counter drops. That can be a recipe for disaster. See an ophthalmologist and they will take care of it properly.

Elevate head @ night: Eye swelling often accompanies allergic reactions or surgery. Other than antihistamines and oral arnica montana (available at health food stores) which may help your body reabsorb the bruising and swelling, gravity is your best friend. Sleep with a sofa cushion under your mattress so that your head is above heart level. Dr. Tholen.

Do you mean RED &...: Swollen eye? Sounds infected if it is unilateral. If on both sides maybe allergy. Especially if it is painful, affecting vision, recent trauma or exposure to another individual with infection, this needs to be taken care of right away. If you have fever, or pain in the eye don't mess around. Get seen as soon as possible, certainly this would be a reason to go to ER. If no fever, get seen w/in 24hr
