Q: 

My boyfriend''s upper eyelid is swollen and painful. what is the problem?

A: There can be many reasons causing the swelling, related to the description that you have mentioned. The swelling seems to come across as an infection involving one of the numerous lubricating secretory organs that are located just under the surface of the upper palpebra or eyelid. When the gland becomes septic due to infection and gets inflamed it is unable to lubricate, thus leading to a blockage which becomes visible through the delicate and tender eyelid skin. This is known as a meibomian cyst or chalazion and cannot be treated through nonprescription applications. The best way to get relief from the pain and the discomfort is to apply a...

Q: 

My eyes are always watering and sometimes I find stringy things inside my eyes is this normal?

A: It''s possible that you have blepharitis - a very common type of eye infection that tends to be chronic (in other words, it comes and goes). The best thing to do (and you can do this safely even if it''s not blepharitis) is eyelid scrubs twice daily and use artificial tears 3-4 times a day. Eyelid scrubs: need baby shampoo, Q-tips, and washcloth. Wet a wash cloth in warm water and hold it against your closed eyes for 5 minutes, rewetting washcloth as needed so that it is warm the whole time. Squirt a small amount of baby shampoo in the palm of your hand and add a little water. Mix the water and shampoo together with your finger (from your other hand). Then dip the...
