Corner of right eye swollen. Possible causes?

It depends on...: If it is the corner near the nose it could be an infection or blockage of the lacrimal sac. This is most likely if you have tearing or marked pain. This should be evaluated asap. You could also have an infection called angular blepharitis or a blockage of a meibomian gland called a chalazion. If it persists you should see an ophthalmologist.

The corner of my right eye hurt a little last night. I woke up with a swollen right eye but it doesn't hurt or anything. The hot compress didn't help.

YourEye Is Earitated: Then try a cool compress. And if it doesn't hurt, and the white of the eye isn't red and there's no discharge (goop) from the eye and your vision is good, then see if it goes away on it's own. If it starts to itch, take some Benadryl (diphenhydramine). But if it persists more than a week or gets worse before that, then go see a doctor, preferably an eye doctor but a generalist could probably handle it.

Go to the ER: The important question here is: Do you have an orbital cellulitis. This refers to an infection inside the eye socket which is thankfully rare but potentially devastating. Other possibilities are herpes keratitis, or acute iritis. Severe pain when you move your eye left, right, up, or down is an indication of something serious inside the socket and you should seek immediate medical attention

Ophthalmologist: This may be the result of a blockage in a gland duct of the eyelid. It's best to have an ophthalmologist evaluate and treat you. In the meantime apply warm soaks until you're examined.
