What are some ways to treat puffy eyes?
Sleeping with the head slightly elevated and getting more sleep may help, but if morning puffiness persists, a cool compress can reduce the swelling. A cool washcloth, an ice pack, cucumber slices or any cool object may relieve puffiness when applied for a few minutes with light pressure. Over-the-counter or prescription allergy remedies typically control watery, itchy eyes that invite rubbing, which can result in swelling.
