VariousPossibilities: The description of a bubble may be any of a number of findings. Besides cysts (fluid filled sacks), you could be seeing a pingueculum or early pterygium or even a prolapsed fat pad or portion of the lacrimal gland tissue. If the change persists or increases or has any other associated symptoms, it would be best to have it checked by an ophthalmologist for proper care. Never treat on your own!
