For the past few years, this huge bag/whatever the heck it is has been getting worse. It makes my eye feel very heavy & weird. I am a social drinker who does consume a lot of alcohol on the weekends & wear contact lenses on a daily basis - ALL day. But my left eye does NOT look like that! It's perfectly fine. I often find myself Photoshopping it out, or just taking pics with my left eye just visible. I am embarrassed & need some answers! Please help! :(
Your picture had been removed, so I was not able to access it. Without an exam, it is very hard to say what is going on, but the degree of swelling you are describing is not normally seen with blepharitis. I would see an ophthalmologist for an exam.
Thank you, Doctor. As this time, I am currently awaiting benefits from my job (I've been waiting for longer than usual, and feel I am being cheated) and cannot afford a visit to an opthalmologist. I have uploaded the pic again:
In the middle picture, your left eyeball looks more prominent. There are many reasons for this, and the correct diagnosis can be obtained through a complete examination with an ophthalmologist. If you live in the U.S. and are not insured, you can obtain a free exam with an ophthalmologist through the American Academy of Ophthalmology's EyeCare America program. Many ophthalmologists (including me) are involved in this program, and we are referred patients without insurance to examine and treat.
