If tearing or watering is present and you are not emotionally distressed, allergy or injury is the probable cause. Hay fever, otherwise known as allergic rhinitis, is a common cause. The condition would also be accompanied by sneezing and a runny nose.

An allergic reaction to mascara or other eye makeup could be the problem. If the area is read, as well as swollen, your makeup could be to blame. This type of reaction would not necessarily cause the eye itself to water.

Is the puffiness in only one eye? If so, then an injury, rather than an allergy, is the most likely cause. The injury could be as simple as sleeping on that side of your face. You could have rubbed your eye in your sleep. It could even be a symptom of sensitivity to the material your pillowcase is made from.
