    When you are swimming in the swimming pool, your eyes might be stimulated by bleaching powder and disinfectant and cause the conjunctivitis. Often after you leave the pool, your swollen eyes will be fine ten minutes to several hours later. Generally you do not need treatment. If it gets worse, your eyes keep swollen one or two days, you should be timely treated in the way of dropping the ophthalmic about antibiotics or antiviral. My best wishes to your health.
