Retaining water in eyelid?

My right eye has been tearing for awhile in the outer corner to where even waterproof make-up won't stay on. I went to an eye doctor and she said that she couldn't see anything wrong-she fully examined my eyeball and checked my tearducts.

I have noticed the past few weeks when I wake up, my right eyelid seems a bit puffy and I can kinda see that it seems to be retaining water. This morning when I woke up, the eye was noticibly puffy with water retention but after I was up for awhile it went down. My eye looks a bit irritated and is kinda ichy tonight now.

What could this be? Someone mentioned that it could be a cold or sinus issue and it's settling in my eye.
