Question: I had swollen eyes the day after a treadmill stress test. I was also affected by tree pollen that day. The swelling went down the next day. My vision seemed to improve (I am under evaluation for cataracts).

Possible diagnosis: Pollen allergy

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

The eye swelling you experienced is likely an allergic reaction to tree pollen. You can take antiallergic Cetirizine 10 mg once daily at bedtime until the swelling resolves completely.
