Chemosis in eye
Can chemosis in an eye, be a symptom of hyperopia? I had two instances (within five months interval) of chemosis (swelling of white part of eye like a gel formation and reddish with pain). It resolved on its own. And I have a prescription for hyperopia +2.5. But I am not using glasses continously. Is that what causing the swelling?

Chemosis does not occur due to hypermetropia, it may be due to allergic conditions, consult some local Opthalmologist when it reoccurs for proper advice but it is not due to hypermetropia.

In my opinion it is unlikely that the hyperopia is causing the chemosis It may be a manifestation of some allergy If it occurs repeatedly then maybe some systemic etiology  has to be ruled out
Next Steps
if it recurs ,requires a further evaluation
