What does swelling in the right eye indicate?

I am fighting a cold and suddenly my right eye is puffy and creating mucus. The eye is bloodshot. The lids appear to be somewhat red. I don t use eye make-up. I do use Restasis drops and put them in this morning. The problem started about mid-afternoon. My vision is blurred in that eye. Suggestions??
