Sore eyes

Swollen eyelids occur when there is a swelling or excess fluid in the tissues around the eyes. Both upper eyelids and lower ones are affected, and in some cases you may feel pain in the eyes. The causes of this condition are infections, injuries or ocular trauma, but the most common are allergies. If symptoms persist, worsen or change, it is important to see your doctor for a thorough eye exam.
