Weird eye swelling.

Hi, so I have a two year old female bearded dragon named Jesse, and theres random times where I take her for a bath, or when shes walking around and her eyes will swell, sometimes getting red, It looks painful when it swells so I just put her back under her light. I get swelling happens normally when they're about to shed, but this has happened on and off over the last two months. It isn't a daily occurrence, it only happens when I put her in a warm bath, or shes out from under her lights sometimes walking around. It usually takes a minute to a minute and a half before her eyes swell in a warm bath, or maybe 5 to 10 minutes out from under her light where shes walking around. I don't understand if it could be dust, the lights, something? I've looked at all kinds of other forums to find if someone asked the same question and I've never really found it. I do not have a reptile vet nearby, but I am moving states in a week or so where I know one will be nearby. Regardless, It's worried me, I don't understand what the problem is. Could it be that I use Coiled UVB lights? Every time I've switched them if I thought they were bad, but her eyes still swell at random times. Also, its not always when shes out of her tank, it's only sometimes. Like, she can be laying on me and chilling on me and be completely comfortable for an hour or two, no swelling and just looking around chilling. I do not have any videos or pictures of it, but if someone requests it I could try to catch it when it happens.

Don't use coil UVB lights! They do not provide enough UVB and may be harmful to your lizard. Please switch to a Reptisun T8 10.0 as soon as possible. Please do try and get a picture :)

Yes, I plan on switching both of my beardies lights to them once I have enough! Should be as soon as I can! I will try to get a video or picture as soon as next time it happens.
