Puffy eyes are often caused due to excessive stress, sleep deprivation, poor diet and alcohol consumption. It may also be cause of certain eye diseases, allergies and infections. Puffy eyes may be followed by itchiness, irritation, blurry vision, eye discharge, redness, pain and discomfort. Such swelling can be treated by splashing cold water, dabbing ice cubes, staying hydrated at all times, reducing sodium in the diet and increasing intake of vitamin and minerals. Eye care creams with aloe vera and vitamin E help soothe the eyes and improve the condition.
