I'm afraid you have hit the accept button a bit early before the actual answer could have been given. But I can assure you that the best possible answer will be given.

So there is a mild swelling of the upperlid. But do you recollect any trauma/injury to the right eye or the head/forehead in the recent few days?

Expert:  Dr. A.S. Desai replied 5 years ago.
It does not matter which eye is affected .

A black or blue discoloration of the upperlid with minor swelling is most likely from a subtle injury/insect bite which could have gone un-noticed. The other possibility is that or a hordeolum( which is inflammation of meibomian gland, which is an oil secreting gland present in the eyelid). Warm compresses can be done twice a day. Normally this will resolve in a weeks time with warm compresse. But in case the symptoms persist or there is worsening of the vision , then it is better to consult an ophthalmologist for a closer look at the eye.

Please feel free to ask follow up questions ,if any.

Thank you and best wishes
