I am very concerned because I had upper and lower eyelid surgery 9 days ago. My left eye is healing great; however my right eye has not been right from the beginning. It has always been more swollen, then got a little better, now this morning almost swollen shut. My PS saw it today and just said to give it time. But I am very worried why one is so much worse!

Finally went to see opthamologist yesterday after eye was swollen shut and got prescribed a steroid dose pack and wishin 12 hours eye was 25% better. Today...75% better! So glad I did this bc the opthamologist said the swelling was putting pressure on my eye which can affect your vision!!

My right eye still has a lump on lower lid so he is going to do a steroid injection next week. Hope that will do the trick.
