Swelling Of The Eyelids And Reddish In Color?
2 days ago I felt something strange with my left eye, I left it for 1 day because I thought it was just an ordinary twinkle. After the next day it was still the same, I checked in front of the mirror then opened my eyelids. I was surprised to find that the skin under the lashes was red and I compared it to my right eye, the result was my right eye was normal. My question is, am I suffering? What does the red color on the skin under my lashes mean? The next day the kelopa eyes began to swell slightly.

If you experience sore, watery eyes, and are accompanied by visual disturbances, you should immediately see an ophthalmologist for further evaluation of your eye.
