Brief Answer:
It can be inflammations of glands of lids or skin.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health care magic.

I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an Ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that you are having puffiness on left side of face.
The inflammations involving the glands of the eyelids are known to cause this unilateral swelling.
Since there is no pain and eye examination is normal as told by your eye doctor this is unlikely to be related to eye.
The other things that need to be considered are eczema or other conditions affecting the local skin or systemic causes like anaemia...

I am not able to see the attached photo with the question, please re attach the photo so that I can have a look and advice more accurately.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
with regards
