It's possible that it may be caused by diabetes.
The human eye needs to be constantly lubricated (by tears), one of the many eye complications that diabetics can suffer from is a slight swelling of the eye due to pressure building up from within the eye itself (Glaucoma).

See an Ophthamologist, as well as your Diabetes Professional to schedule an appointment for an eye examination to determine a course of preventive action.
