Hi Livi19,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Eyeballs that appear enlarged on one side may indicate inflammation in the supporting tissue of the eyeball. If this condition appears accompanied by pain, then the possible causes are:

Post-injury, for example due to being hit or impacted by hard objects

Blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids)

Conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva)

Uveitis (inflammation of the uvea tract)

Keratitis (inflammation of the cornea)
Endofthalmitis (inflammation of the inner lining of the eyeball)
Panophthalmitis (inflammation of all layers of the eyeball), and so on

It could also, apart from inflammation of the eyeball, it looks enlarged and feels painful due to being bitten by insects or other animals, having an allergy to substances that come in contact with the eye, tumors that push the eyeball out, glaucoma (increased pressure in the eyeball), thyroid gland disorders, disorders kidney, nerve disorders around the eyes, and so on. Some people can also be born with the size of a large eyeball, although it does not always indicate an abnormality. Or, it may also be that the eyeballs appear larger because the other eyeballs are getting smaller, for example due to ptosis (lazy eye), hordeolum (bumps), and so on.


There are many possible conditions that can underlie your complaint. Each of these possibilities can only be distinguished through direct physical examination by a doctor or ophthalmologist. Therefore, do not hesitate to check yourself in the nearest health facility to be given the best management, yes. For the time being, we urge you to take the following steps:

Compress eyes with warm water, while elevated while sleeping
Do not over rub or hold your eyes with dirty hands
Taking paracetamol if pain is felt in the eyes and temples is very great
Enough sleep
Don't cry too much
Avoid contact between eyes and substances that are prone to triggering inflammation, including excessive cosmetics, contact lenses, facial soap, etc.
Do not carelessly use eye drops, eye ointments, or other substances to deal with your complaints (without direct advice from a doctor)
