So a couple of days ago I woke up with 

1. swollen eye lids (upper)

2. Red eyes

I took some allergy medicine and waited a day.  Nothing really changes so I went to the doctor and they perscribed two antibiotic drops.  I've been taken them for a few days.  There might be a small improvement after a day or two.  

What I noticed this morning and why I am posting here is that when i turn my eye towards my nose it appears as if the whites of my eye are bulging up and not going under my socket etc.  It looks almost as if they are wrinkleing up and not moving around.  Does anyone know what this might be/ if it is serious?  It's saturday so there are not eye doctors really open.

    just have no idea what that could be. But if you live in the UK you will normally have a local optician who can triage your eyes and tell you if there is anything problematic. If there is they will send you to eye casualty. If in doubt with eyes best to be checked.

    If that happened for the first time, wait until inflammation subsides. I think it is not a serious problem.

    I'm pretty sure my tear ducts are swollen or inflamed as well wonder if that could be causing the problem I called eye doctor and they said to schedule an appointment on Monday

      Well that sounds like a plan. I would do that and try to relax over the weekend. If he thought it was anything serious he would have told you to go to eye causualty.

    It is indeed a great worry for a person to go through such a problem. I am sure it would be managable. It is good that you will be going to the Doc in one of these days.

    Wishing you the best
