The symptoms you described may be indicative of several things, including idiopathic orbital inflammation, allergic conjunctivitis, or blepharochalasis.
Given that you don't have significant pain in the eyes, idiopathic orbital inflammation is not as likely.
Allergic conjunctivitis can have some of the same symptoms you are describing, but usually the symptoms and signs are more constant (not as episodic) and not as severe.
While rare, the signs and symptoms you are describing sound consistent with blepharochalsis syndrome. The episodic leaking of fluid in and around the eyes with the eyelids filling with fluid in swift fashion is characteristic of this. It is also found usually in young women such as yourself.
If this is the case with you (and your symptoms seem to support this) there is not an established treatment or treatments that have been proven to work. A combination of antihistamines (claritin, zyrtec, benadryl), mast-cell stabilizers (cromolyn sodium), steroids (both topical and oral) and cool compresses has shown to be the most effective. However, these work best when taken on regular basis and not on an episodic basis. Cool compresses also work best when done frequently and regularly.
