Bruised: It appears to be a mild bruise. If it does not hurt too much and your vision is normal, then it should settle down in the next 2-3 days. If either pain increases or vision decreases or in case of increasing swelling, you should go see your doctor(Family doctor may be adequate unless vision has decreased). An eye specialist is called Ophthalmologist. ...Read more

What : What you describe sounds like a chalazion or commonly known as a stye. Try placing a warm wash cloth on the lid three or four times daily. If the stye does not go away, there are other treatment options and surgical options you may discuss with your ophthalmologist. Styes can also be associated with lid margin disease. Lid margin disease is a common and frequently chronic inflammation of the eyelids. Symptoms include irritation, itching, and, occasionally, a red eye. This condition frequently occurs in people who tend to have oily skin, dandruff, or dry eyes. Bacteria normally reside on the skin, but in some people, they thrive in the skin at the base of the eyelashes. Nearby oil glands may be overactive, causing dandruff-like scales and particles to form along the lashes and eyelid margins, which can cause redness, stinging, or burning. Lid margin disease cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with a few simple, daily hygienic measures, such as the following: at least twice a day, place a warm, wet washcloth over your closed eyelids for a minute. Rewet it as it cools, two or three times. This will soften and loosen scales and debris. More important, it helps liquefy the oily secretions from the eyelidsâ€™ oil glands, which helps prevent the development of a chalazion, an inflamed lump in an eyelid oil gland. With your finger covered with a thin, wet washcloth, cotton swab, or commercial lint-free pad, gently scrub the base of the lashes for about 15 seconds per lid. When medications are necessary, they may include: artificial tears (over-the-counter eyedrops) to relieve symptoms of dry eye; antibiotics (oral or topical) to decrease bacteria on the eyelids; and steroids (short-term), to decrease inflammation. Medications alone are not sufficient to control lid margin disease; the application of warmth and detailed cleansing of the lashes daily is the key. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multiple causes: It depends on exactly what is wrong. A droopy appearing eyelid may be caused by excess upper eyelid skin or drooping of the eye brow. It could be something called ptosis which means the actual edge of the eyelid droops down. There are a number of causes of ptosis. You should see an eye doctor who treats eyelid problems to determine the cause and possible treatment options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
