Eye, inflamation in corner of eye

Does this happen to anyone else's havanese?
Sometimes Henry's eye (just one) becomes bigger and appears red and inflamed.
Here I took a picture ,hope it is very clear.
It usually calms down after a night's sleep but I am wondering if anyone else see this.
I do get worried.

Try flushing with saline. Maybe there is an irritant on his eye...

But of course I am not a vet. The vet would be able to see if there is an ulcer (aka tiny scratch) on the cornea, I think. There is a vet on the forum maybe they will chime in.

Mig's eyes get irritated a lot. I use Bausch & lomb eye wash and it really helps.

I would check with the vet just to rule out glaucoma, you can never be too careful with your pups eyes.

I agree with Katie looks like Cherry eye. You can see about having your vet popping it back into place non-surgically. I have a girl that it comes and goes with.

Henry just woke up , and his eye is back to normal. I should keep some B&L eye-wash on hand for future.
