Fluid filled bulge under eye
My 80 year old father has a large fluid filled bulge under his right eye.  It appears to be positional in nature since his posture due to chronic spine conditions leaves him paralell to the ground and leaning to his right side almost constantly whether sleeping or moving about.

My question is, what are the possible treatment methods or protocols.  I have heard everything from surgery to repair a blocked tear duct to simply draining the bulge knowing that it will return again.  MRI or any other imaging is impossible due to the spince conditions and the inability to lie flat. Could you please provide some insight as to what may be occurring?

Thank You!

Usually it does not require any extensive testing or radiology studies. Usually its swelling of the conjunctiva called chemosis. He does however need to see an ophthalmologist for proper treatment and diagnosis
