Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I am currently online and able to help answer your questions. Are you available to chat?
Unfortunately, lower eye edema (swelling) takes a long time to resolve. The fluid accumulates in the fat behind the skin and unlike other areas takes longer than normal. I have two bits of advice for you- 1) patience and 2) this is antecdotal but I have seen Preparation H (yes the type for hemorrhoids) to help. A very small amount applied to the skin above the area two times per day. Stay away from the eyelid margin where the lashes are and then make sure to wash you hand. Try this for a few days.
I hope that his has been helpful to you. Please press the green ACCEPT button so that I may earn credit for my efforts. Any POSITIVE feedback that you may have will be much appreciated.
I see that you are online now.
Is there anything else that I can answer for you?
I forgot to say that I have tried that at well....I guess it's large sunglasses for awhile.
Oh so you had heard of this beauty tip too!
There really is nothing else at this time except for a blepharoplasty down the line. It will take a few weeks for the swelling to improve.
