In brief: Cool compresses

Depending on the cause of the swelling, cool or cold compresses can help a lot.
If an infection is causing the swelling, further treatment may be needed. Blepharitis is a common cause of eyelid swelling, you can get more info: http://www.2020vision.Com/blepharitis.Html another common cause is not swelling, but rather the normal fat pads pressing forward as we age.
