In brief: Sometimes

Eye swelling can be caused by focal infection, angioedema, systemic salt imbalance, heart and kidney failure, secondary to some drugs used to treat other illnesses and thyroid disease (to name a few).
The speed of disappearance of the swelling depends upon which of these you have. You should consult with your ophthalmologist to sort this out.
