  • In the old day they woud stick a bag of frozen peas on the swollen eye, but in this day and age I think a bag with ice in it would do the same thing?

  • it could definetely be an infection, but he might also have scratched his cornea. I would take him to the eye doctor.

  • i would get him to flush it out with an eye wash and put some ice on it and take some advil. if its still giving problems tomorrow then you might want to have it looked at to make sure he didnt get an abrasion on his eye.
