In brief: INFECTION or ALLERGY
A swollen eye is concerning for an infection so i would recommend getting seen right away.
A particularly concerning infection is called 'peri-orbital cellulitis' which may need I.V. Antibiotics. A swollen eye may also be an allergic response so antihistamines may help (e.g. Benadryl/zyrtec/allegra).

In brief: Huh?
You can't see out of the eye that is shut closed? Use cold compresses and keep your head up- if no better tomorrow, see ophthalmologist.
