• Why would I wake up with one swollen upper and lower eyelid with blurry vision and pain around and in the eye?


    Question:

    Why would I wake up with one swollen upper and lower eyelid with blurry vision and pain around and in the eye? Swelling goes down during the morning and blurry vision improves but it comes back in flares through the day. I also have moderate pain with some double vision and light sensitivity. I'm 30 years old and have mild farsightedness.


    Answer:

    There are many different types of inflammatory diseases (when your body’s immune system, which normally fights germs, attacks its own tissues) of the eye that may cause these symptoms. I strongly suggest that you schedule a visit with an ophthalmologist. She will examine your eyes and determine if any additional testing is needed to help diagnose and treat your condition.
