Thanks for the information.
What you are experiencing is eye allergy. The treatment for this is -
- apply cold compresses on closed eye lids with ice
- wear goggles
- use anti-allergy eye drops like zaditor/patanol (available OTC)
If there is o improvement with the above treatment, then you need to consult an Ophthalmologist for detailed evaluation and treatment.
