Does anyone else have swollen/puffy upper eye lids?

I do have a thyroid condition and wonder if that could be the cause.

I hate it so much and I feel like crying every time I see a photo of myself. Just wondered if anyone suffered the same and knew the cause or what can be done about it?

Yes, I have an autoimmune disease too and its certainly the reason.

Is there anything we can do?

Don't know grin. I have prescription eyedrops, but mine are much worse when I'm having a flare.
Eye lift is the only way mine would look better.

I have hyperthyroidism and have swollen eyelids too.
Unfortunately I don't have any advice on how to reduce the puffiness and like you, it can really get me down. I have heard that it can it can gradually wear off in time but it's tough.
