Your symptoms of inner eyelid irritation is very unusual for Radiesse or any filler used in the periorbital region. See an ophthalmologist immediately to examine your eye and let your doctor who did the injections know how you're doing even before you see an ophthalmologist.

You need an Ophthalmology consult and complete eye exam ASAP. It is possible this is not related to your Radiesse injection, but there are certain things that need to make sure of.

At the same time see the DOCTOR who injected the radiesse for complete examination to make sure there is no infection or any other problem.

Your symptom complex after injection of Radiesse is not typical; the symptoms you are experiencing may or may not be related to your procedure, but should be evaluated as soon as possible by the Physician who performed the injection.  I would recommend use of artificial tears (Refresh) 4-5 times a day until you have the opportunity to be evaluated.
