Swollen eyelid tear duct

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen eyelid tear duct

swollen

There is no sign of exterior redness, no sign of an infection anywhere, however when I pull the lid down compared to my other eye is is red inside versus being a fleshy color. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> is also overworked I believe because I am able to press down on my right tear duct and create a little crinkly noise, which usually signals to me that its working ok. When I press on the left tear duct nothing happens. My eye is also insanely itchy.
I wear contacts but have not worn them in almost a week, instead I wear my glasses. I have had surgery on my left sinus passage which damaged the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> in my left eye. What should I do? I'm really starting to get worried now.
I have a small white bump on my lower eyelid close to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span>. What could this be? Any treatment recommended?
Lastly ask the external disease specialist about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> plugs for several months. If it works well might consider permanent closure of lower openings. Keep working you may not be able to be cured but you likely can be helped.
I had DCR surgery in 2007 for a blocked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span>. I've had problems with my eye ever since included severe dryness. It's wrong to offer DCR as the first choice when clearly less invasive and more 'ideal' choices are available such as balloon dilatation.
I suggest you see an Eye MD tomorrow (find one at www.aao.org ) as it could be an infected eyelid or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> duct.
My left eye is very swollen and it appears to be a blocked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> duck, However I have been to see two Opthamologist, eye doctor, and Allergy doctor, and General Medicine doctor. No one has been able to figure this one out. It is at its worse i the Morning when I wake up. The eye lid is full of fluid, which looks like my tears . It drains slowly throughout the day and fills back up over night. I've taken antibiotics, Steroid drops, ointments . Nothing has worked.
You probably have a chalazion which is a blocked and infected oil gland in the lid. Start placing hot packs on the eye twice a day. Use very warm tap water in a large bowl. Soak a washcloth in it, wring it out and place it on your eye. After 2 or 3 minutes, re-dip the washcloth and place it again on the eye. Continue this for 10 minutes each time. You may need some oral antibiotics as well. See an ophthalmologist before it gets out of hand. Some of these need surgical drainage.
Therefore, the problem does not involve the eyeball but involves the tissues surrounding the eye. Your dog may have a congenital problem involving her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> or the glands in her eyelids, or her third eyelid. However, to set your mind at ease you can ask your vet to refer your dog to a veterinary opthalmologist. The opthalmologist has the proper equipment to test for eye problems beyond the scope of non-specialized veterinarians.
I had not changed my contacts in a while so thought they might be irritating it, or I possibly had a blocked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> (not sure what that looks like though). This morning, the swelling had gone down, or at least it had spread out to more under the eye and was less noticable, however the other eye has some swelling now. This is on my eyelid, and it looks almost like I was punched in the eye (Rocky style). Both places are painless, soft, and seem to simply be fluid buildup.
I don't care about my forehead and cheeks. I am very concern about my eyes. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> on my left eye is very swollen. By the way, I am a 32 female.

Improvement often continues for up to 6 months. If you have tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> plugs you should have had all for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> openings (puncta) plugged with a permanent plus (not a disolving one). Usually just the lower lids are done with mild dry eyes. If your problem is as bad as you say, you and your ophthalmologist should discuss permanent closure of some or all four of the tear duct openings with cautery.
Gradually in two days it was back to normal. It would start swelling in the upper eyelid right at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> next to my nose. This would happen about 5-7 times, then it would swell up very bad so I could hardly see and had to strain to do that, after that extreme swelling it stopped for several years. Then like it started, it began all over again a few years later. I went through this cycle all over again in the early 90's. My last cycle of this was in 1993.
My right eye has been crying for two days now.. the eyelid is swollen presumably from the water, but otherwise it looks fine. Can you suggest why this is or any treatment? Thank you.
I admit it is totally my fault I have this problem. The eyelid and area above have been red and swollen for four days. I would have thought the redness and swelling would be gone by now, but it is still there. Is there anything I can do to reduce the swelling and get rid of the redness? Thank you.
It starts to swell around the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> part of the eye and then spreads down underneath and over the top eyelid. I can usually tell when it is coming. That sinus feels clogged, and it itches mildly for a week in advance. It usually lasts about 24 hours, and it does not affect my vision. I went to an Allergist who said it looks like an allergy, but he couldnt say to what, and none of the eye drops he gave me helped.
He has bloody looking spots, one small and one larger near his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span>. Should I worry about this? He said it was painful and hard to see for about an hour or so after getting hit. His eyelid was swollen and now a little bruised.
when the swelling occurs, my 'eye ball' as such is fine, looks white and completely normal, however the area below my eye, my eyelid, and the area between my eye and nose is very swollen, most of the time so much so that my eye opening is little more than a slit. i have had my tear duct checked and it appears fine, and have been allergy tested which has come back with nothing! the swelling usually lasts for approx 2 days at its worst, and slowly goes down after 4 days.
Hi, I have the same type of issue going on, I have dry eye syndrome and have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> plugs on bottom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> ducts and on and off have the same squishiness on top eye lids right under brows that drives me crazy! It is sometimes one eye or both and sometimes it's there and sometimes it's not, but I have nasal/sinus issues too and get the pain and pressure right there as well.
About a month ago in my left eye, I had either a stye or blocked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> possibly as evidenced by a bruised dark red mark under my eye on the outside of my botttom eyelid. May have nothing to with the price of tea in China but thought I would mention it. Thanks for the help!
The medication often stings when therapy is begun--it usually gets better by week three or your Ophthalmologist (EyeMD) can prescribe a mild steroid drop for a couple of weeks. Improvement often continues for up to 12 months. If you have tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> plugs you should have had all for tear duct openings (puncta) plugged with a permanent plus (not a disolving one). Usually just the lower lids are done with mild dry eyes.
Late Thursday night the lower lid, inner corner of one eye got a little swollen, red, and tender - right in the area of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span>. Each day it has gotten a little worse. (Today is Saturday.) There is no scratch or pimple and I was not hit. The inner corner swollen spot is tender to touch and sometimes itchy. Hot wet cloth compresses help for a few hours. From what I have read, I think it is a stye.

My cat doesn’t have any other medical problems, no fever and is eating and acting fine. She has always had a blocked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> in this eye all her life. It has always been a weeping eye, but it has never been infected or swelled. This first started out as what seemed to be a cold as I heard some noisy breathing from her. Then the third eyelid showed up in one eye. Then it started to show some goop in it.
I go back to follow up and she tells me my eye looks normal again, but the top <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> looks a little narrowed. She thinks this is all allergies and that I should see an Allergist.
My nose is clear but I wonder about a sinus infection. Also I wonder about my cat alergies. Could either affect just one eye? What about a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> infection, would that make my eye tendon hurt this much? And finally how can you tell if and antibiotic is working? Thank you Thank you Thank you for any advise. PS I have no insurance and very limited income.
I was wondering if anyone here has ever experienced eye swelling for no apparent reason. Twice in the last 4 weeks I have had one eyelid swell dramatically. It only lasts about 24 hours and both times I have been at home. There is no pain or redness and very little itching. It doesn't water or have discharge and since there is no sinus pressure or stuffiness I don't think it's an allergy.
If you have tried tear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> plugs you should have had all for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tear</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>duct</span> openings (puncta) plugged with a permanent plus (not a disolving one). Usually just the lower lids are done with mild dry eyes. If your problem is as bad as you say, you and your ophthalmologist should discuss permanent closure of some or all four of the tear duct openings with cautery. Additional things that can help include a diet rich in fatty fish (eg salmon, sardines, etc).
