Customer Question
Why would someone's eye...

Why would someone's eye swell when they exercise? My son's left eye (only) does this when he runs. He is currently in basic training and is hoping it doesn't discharge him.

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No. It started around April/May 2017. I thought it was from haircare products and him sweating it into his eye. However, he has no hair right now. It only does it when he runs really hard.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. He's 19

There are number of reason why this might happen.

Your son should try to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist when his eye is swollen, or maybe exercise on a treadmill so the doctor can see it happen.

Another option would be to take a movie showing the swelling as it is occurring.

In a nutshell, this sort of thing is very unusual but it is possible. As such it would need a good MD to figure it out.

Does this make sense to you?
