See an MD eyedoc: I have never read an observation like this. I can only guess that you have some fat prolapse through the insertion of tenons Capsule into the superior episcleral tissues. I don't think it is serious, but this guess does not have the benefit of a physical exam. Please see an ophthalmologist to rule out liver disease. Best wishes!
