My wife's right eye ball is swelling. It appears to have a gel like bubble on the side. She said it felt like pink eye at first and she rubbed it and it immediately began to swell.
Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer

Due to excessive or vigourous rubbing of the eye, there might be chemosis of the conjunctivitis ie the thin translucent layer on the white of the eye becomes swollen. In the absence of any other eye symptoms like reduced vision , redness , watering , you can start putting zaditor/ alaway eye drops , 1 drop twice a day along with preservative free Refresh tears eye drops , 1 drop 4 times a day for a period of 1 week. You can take tab. diclofenac 50 mg + serratiopeptidase 10 mg combination , 1 tablet twice a day for 3 days.

If symptoms do not subside by 1 week , you can consult an ophthalmologist for a detailed eye check up.

Thanks and best wishes
