Resolved Question:

Hi, For the last month, I have been having swelling below my left eye with nasal congestion. The pollen count in my area is very high. I have had two sinus surgeries and have been tested for allergies on several occassions. My ENT says he believes I have allergies, while 2 different allergists say I do not. I am considering visiting an opthalmologist to see if I have an unrelated eye problem. I would appreciate any input you may have. Thank You.

Hello there

As an ophthalmologist, I feel there are few causes of lower lid swelling related to eye disorders. I think that an ophthalmic exam may be beneficial. One thing to remember is that the swelling may be limited to that eye is you happen to sleep mainly on that side at night. Regards, XXXXX XXXXX
