Hi, so my 1 year old girl has a bit of a swollen eye (not the skin just the bulb). I've done some research and found that glaucoma can do a similar thing but hers is no where near as swollen as the pictures I've seen. There is no porphyrin (non more than usual) and she doesn't seem to scratch it. She plays pretty raugh with her sister so could it be just a scratch or do I need to worry?
Ps I first noticed the eye yesterday and it has not changed today from what I can see
I will post pictures as soon as I can get one of her eyes at least somewhat in focus
Thanks for any advice!

Sorry for the late reply!
No, I don't think so. The eye just suddenly looks bigger than the other. It might be a bit more wet than normal and there seems to be some bild up porphyrin (although it is "normal" for her). I did some camomile tea packs to wash the excess porphyrin witch seemed to help. It doesn't seem to bother her and seams to have stopped getting bigger... this is why I tried asking here before taking her to the vet directly

She turned one last month.
She is active and I haven't noticed any behavioural changes.
Last time I took them to the vet for a check up he told me to watch her eyes because they where watery. She will sometimes produce porphyrin out of noticed during play time but as I said, it's not unusual for her and the vet wasn't able to tell me more.
