Welcome to Just Answer

Is the swelling restricted to only part of the orbit or is it more of a diffuse orbital swelling?Any known history of sinusitis?

Do you see any pimple/sore spot around the orbit?

What is the duration of these symptoms- how many days/weeks since it has been noticed?

How is the vision in the affected eye ( check by closing the other eye)?

Any history of diabetes?

When was your last eye exam by an ophthalmologist and what was the report then?
