swelling in both eyes
Hello,
For the past 2 weeks I have had severe swelling in both eyes, almost to the point that the eyelid blocks my iris and impedes vision.  I only swell at night, and only when I lay flat, however the swelling only subsides during the day after I apply ice packs for extended periods.   I am overweight, 240lbs., at 5' 8".  Could the edema be due to heart/cardiac issues?  I have been taking allergy medication to no avail.  What else could this be?  I don't have any itching, burning, etc. or other signs/symtoms of infection.

There are many causes and you need to start sorting them out. Begin by seeing an Eye MD ophthalmologist. Find one at www.aao.org. Take in a picture of your lids when swollen.
