Normal for now: It is normal to have significant bruising and swelling for up to a week post-op. It usually goes down readily thereafter. Just keep doing what you are with head elevation-for the first 72 hours. After that, it will just improve gradually. ...Read more

If the swelling occurs only when exercising outdoors, airborne allergens may well be the cause as well. Allergy shots works about 80% of the time and usually takes months to become effective.

My eyes are getting dry, which leads to irritation and swelling of eyes.

I sleep at late nights around 2-3 am and wake around 10am.

Lack of lubricant: The most common cause of dry eyes is a decrease in the production of tears that lubricate the eyes. This can also be caused by seasonal allergies (pollen, etc). If you are wearing contacts, you should take them out more often. You could start out with over the counter moisturizing drops, but if you need to use them for a long time, you should see an eye doctor. Plugs or prescription drops for dry. ...Read more

Does crying too much cause puffier eyes permanently? I noticed that every time I cry, my eyes gets a bit puffier even after the swelling go down.

Of course, if a person were upset enough to be "crying all the time" she may have a psychological illness such as depression or anxiety, which would alter her facial expressions and appearance, because expressions come from within. ...Read more
