I really want to know the exact reason for why the eyes swell. Sure, they get irritated from the fluids, but what inside the eyelid swells and how and why?

It’s because emotional tears are more watery, they’re less salty than basic tear secretions and the tissue in your eye. So, through the process of osmosis in the cells, the water moves into the saltier ocular tissues, which makes them swell up.
