Tiny white bump on eyeball

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Yesterday, I just noticed that it feels like something was on my eye and I kept trying to rub it off . I checked on the mirror to see what it was and I saw a tiny white bump on the lower right corner of my left eye . I couldn't get rid off it and it's still on my eye until today .

I didn't google it 'cause I'm way too scared . Was wondering if anyone else has experienced this ?

I drew what it looks like:

I had the same thing back a couple of months ago but it was on my inner bottom lid and I just happened to notice it when I was cleaning my face/rubbing my eyes in the mirror. I did the research at that time because me and Dr. Google go way back 😜 and everything said they're normal, can happen to anyone and are more likely to appear if you've been in windy, dusty, sandy or dry air recently. Can also come from irritation of your lashes falling out and or make up if you wear any! Long story short I just kept an eye on mine and decided if it got worse or started to bother me I would go get it looked at but after about a week it was completely gone on its own. I recommend just waiting it out unless it becomes bothersome and I'm sure it'll resolve on it's own 🙂 you could also grab some artificial tears from the drug store if you feel your eyes are dry which may irritate it. Best of luck to you 🙂

Hi,

OMG . Thank you so much I feel a little more calm right now . I was scared that I might be the only one experiencing this and no one would respond . I almost googled it 'cause I was so scared . Thank you for responding . I'll probably wait it out . Yeah, my eyes feel dry sometimes and my lashes kept falling into my eyelid and I rub my eyes a lot . Could be all of those .

Hope your eye feels better soon! And yes, don't google. That's not going to do any good! 🙂

I had a similar experience with what looked like a small blister in the inner corner of my right eye.  I could feel something there and kept checking it several time a day. After about a week when it did not go away I went to my ophthalmologist. She diagnosed it as a harmless cyst. Once I had a professional tell me it was a nothing I no longer paid any attention to it. This was a couple of years ago. It is still there, but I don’t care.

Oooh . Did the doctor say it could go away with some meds ?

How are you feeling today @unicorn ?

Hi !

I'm still a bit terrified about what it is . It's still on my eye . I'm trying not to be bothered but I can feel that it's there sometimes . It also feels a bit more dry than my other eye . I'd probably have it checked by next week or so . I'm so close to googling it too .
