At times the conjunctiva gets filled with fluid as well!
All this causes big trouble to the eyes. Often they can't even close their eyelids properly!
Some other names often used for an eye that has gone swollen for different reasons are conjunctiva, fluid-filled conjunctiva, and chemosis.
Chemosis is the technical name assigned to the problem.
Swelling may result from an allergic response, an infection, a severe exposure, or angioedema - in which the swelling is beneath the skin around the eyes rather than on the surface.
Over-the-counter antihistamines are the most common medication used to relieve the symptoms if they have stemmed from allergic response or angioedema. If they fail to work, prescription antihistamines may be tried.
Cool compresses soothe the swelling but the underlying infection needs to be treated too!
If the swollen eye develops associated symptoms like eye pain, vision blurring, giddiness or some kind of breathing problem; you ought to take it as an emergency and consult an expert immediately.

But one must question why this swollen eye is there after-all! Why after-all do the infections and allergies keep attacking our body mind system?
Something is there very seriously wrong somewhere in our body mind system.
Whatever this wrong is, is obstructing the normal (!) working of the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous systems; and hence everything goes haywire, the swollen eye being but one single manifestation of it.
This wrong is to be turned right, and everything falls in place....all the pieces of jig-saw puzzle fit into each other right!
That's what third eye opening does to us, and vision therapy deals with all such problems as swollen eyes through opening the third eye turning the dynamic posture of the body-mind right.
