During pollen season I shower before bed if I spend much time outside. This decreases the pollen in my hair and on my eyelashes, which helps. I'm also a fan of nasal rinses, which gets the pollen out of your nose.

Anything that causes stuffy nose may also make your eyes swell in the morning. Allergies and being overweight are two common causes.

In brief: Yes
Allergy to dust mite which is present in your mattress and pillows can be the culprit behind allergic eye swelling when you wake up in the morning.
Placing allergy covers over your pillows and mattresses will help.
