Is the swelling on the eye itself (white part of the eye) or on the eyelid?
Swelling of the lid that lasts for several weeks is rather common and often can be relieved by performing lid scrubs and warm compresses. To do this you should take a washcloth and place it under hot water. With your eyes closed you can rub gently at the base of the lashes with the washcloth and apply the heat to the lids.
You are already taking medications which would suggest inflammation on the lid. The Ibilex is an antibiotic that will penetrate the lid, Telfast is an antihistamine and the FML is a weak steroid drop. Often times with the addition of the warm compresses and lid scrubs one can obtain some relief.

Your doctor can be more aggressive if needed, as well. I often use a steroid drop called Lotemax or one called Pred Forte which are much stronger.
