Thank you for the question.

I need a few clarifications here.

I need to know your age. Any known history of hypertension or diabetes?

If you keep both eyes open is there any double vision?

How much of the left eye is covered by the upper eyelid.......or does the left eye appear to be smaller or narrower?

Since how many days have you noticed this.

This is just an information request and I look forward to your replies.

Thank you

I'm a female 33 years old. My father has type 2 diabetes but not me.I'm not sure if it's double vision as much as it is foggy and uncomfortable. Maybe a little double vision.Left eye looks normal when open but it's swollen and you can see it when I close my eyes. I'll include a picture.It's been 2-3 days but very uncomfortable and more blurry since yesterday.

I did see the images and it looks more like an allergic reaction with the mild periorbital puffinesd which is preventing complete eye opening. Fogginess in vision might be related to tear film instability. In the absence of redness or pain the eye it is unlikely to be an infection or inflammation in the eye

It would help to give cool compresses and use OTC available anti allergy eye drops such as Zaditor, 1 drop twice a day for about 2 weeks. In addition to this you can use artificial tear drops to overcome tear film issues. Such as Refresh tears eye drops , 1 drop 4 times a day.

In the event of persistent or worsening of symptoms or presence if new symptoms such as acute pain or redness, do get your eye examined by an ophthalmologist fir a closer look.

Before I complete my answer I would like to compliment that you look absolutely beautiful.

Thank you and best wishes.
