What about swollen and watery eyes?« Back to Questions List

Swollen and watery eyes are often caused by:


Glaucoma is a blinding eye disease that occurs from both congenital and acquired causes. The above causes can lead to an increase in intraocular pressure and damage to the optic nerve when the circulation of aqueous humor in the eye is blocked.
When the acute attack of glaucoma occurs, patients may show symptoms such as eye swelling and pain, tearing, eye congestion, nausea, vomiting, etc., which require timely IOP lowering treatment or surgery to lower the IOP.

2.Visual fatigue:

Visual fatigue is a common ophthalmic disorder, mainly due to prolonged viewing of electronic products such as cell phones and computers, or prolonged close work, which can cause persistent spasm of the ciliary muscle, resulting in a feeling of eye strain and fatigue in patients.
However, it is often not accompanied by an increase in intraocular pressure, while the strong light from electronic screens can also cause watery eyes.


Uveitis is an inflammation of the uvea itself, and its causes include infectious, autoimmune, and traumatic factors. Patients may present with tearing and photophobia, pain, and if accompanied by elevated intraocular pressure, swelling and pain in the eyes.
