Enlargement of the heart with eye swelling

Recently, I found out that my uncle has this weird condition where his heart is swollen. Not only that but apparently all the excess blood rushed up to his left eye and now it is so swollen he can't see. I would like to better understand this to help him, but am not sure what to research. Please help. He lives in Vietnam. The only people I can ask are my family members but they don't really know what's going on either... Thanks for all of your advice I'll be researching the links you gave me.

What would these symptoms indicate? : dull facial expression; droopy eyelids; puffiness of the face and periorbital swelling; sparse, dry hair; dry, scaly skin; evidence of intellectual impairment; lethargy; a change of personality; bradycardia (60 b/min); a blood pressure of 90/70; anemia (hematocrit 27); enlarged heart (upon radiological exam); constipation, and hypothermia. Radioimmunoassay (RIA) of peripheral blood indicated elevated TSH levels. A TSH stimulation test did not increase the output of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland.

About 3 weeks ago, felt like I got something in my eye. That subsided, but had a few black spots in the eye. Mostly gone, but I can now see my heart beat in my eye, particularly in the morning. My peripheral vision in my right eye seems like I am looking through a dirty piece of glass.
