Air bubble: This bubble is probably a conj cyst...A benign swelling on the surface of the eye due to irritation, such as dryness, allergy, or a contact lens....Try systabe drops 3 times per day...If not better in aday or two, call your local eye doctor.

The white part of my eye ball has this pale faint blue to it, what does this mean, and why is it like that?

Thin sclera: Where the sclera is thin, it appears blue from the deoxygenated blood the choroidal blood vessel layer next to the sclera. This is normal in patients who are nearsighted.

See a doctor: It's difficult to know what this might be. You need to have a health care provider take a look at it to give you a good answer.
