Well there are a couple of conditions which can cause this problem but the first one which comes to mind is a bacterial infection, the fluid filled blisters on your eye lid alongwith a swollen eye lid are clear indications for a bacterial infection. The first infection which comes to mind is that you could have sty which can cause multiple points on the eye lid and also cause it to swell up and cause severe pain. In severe cases of sty you may need antibiotics as well as hot compresses and if that doesnt work the sty may have to be lanced.

Secondly, considering the amount of pain that you are in as well as the fact the swelling seems to be worsening we should also consider the possibility of orbital cellulitis. This would cause swelling not only on the eye lid but also around the eye in other soft tissues as well. This is an emergency as if left untreated can lead to the development of loss of vision. In most cases you would need treatment with the help of antibiotics. The prognosis is good if the infection is caught in time and treated effectively.

Now if you can upload the picture i can determine which one of these it can be but regardless of the cause, you should start with hot compresses adn use anti inflammatory agents like motrin or aleve for the pain and swelling. Secondly, from the intensity of the symptoms i would recommend that you DO have this evaluated as it is likely that you will need antibiotics.

ok the picture is sent.

did youi get it.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Thanks for the picture. This is sty, start with the warm compresses and the antiinflammatory medications which i mentioned above. It is not very severe at the moment but if the pain worsens over the next one day, then see your doctor for antibiotics.But this looks like sty which is a bacterial infection of the glands in teh eye lid. Usually warm compresses work best.

will tobrex be the one?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Well usually moxifloxacin drops are used not tobrex, but before using any antibiotics see your doctor, DONT start them on your own.
