Is there any redness or discharge in the eyes..
If yes it could be a conjunctivitis..
On What medications is she for BP?
It could be an idiopathic inflammatory reaction also...
she can do some warm compresses can use some anti inflammatory eye drops.
Better to see the doctor if it not coming down or getting worse...

Radiologist Dr. Rajesh Pahwa's  Response
hi dear
thanks for choosing HCM

lid swelling associated with a jelly like swelling of the white area of eye (medically called as chemosis)is superficial swelling of conjunctiva.

as it is localised to left eye it is probably not releted to her blood pressure.

following possibilities need to be ruled out
1 .insect bite
2 infection of lid .also get her blood suger levels
3. infection of conjunctiva i.e.conjunctivitis

you should start a ciprofloxacin eye drops four times a day
and tablet cetrizine twice a day

good luck
