Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems from the history that your son is having recurrent boil of left eye.
The causes for recurrent boil are uncorrected refractive error leading to eye strain, blepharitis...
Hence he requires examination by a ophthalmologist to look for these causes and treatment accordingly to prevent recurrence.
Along with this he needs to avoid repeated rubbing of eyes as this may cause recurrence of infection.
