Last night my cheekbone hurt like it had been bruised. This morning I woke up, there is no bump but the bottom outside corner of my eye is swollen and hurts very very badly. ?

Possible sty?

Bruising
A sty (medical term: hordeolum) develops when an oil gland at the edge of an eyelid becomes infected. That could make your cheekbone hurt. Warm compresses for about 10 minutes at time can help. Have it evaluated if it is not improving or getting worse.

Please describe these bumps on the corner of my eye crease?

Skin tags

Head-eye
If they are not red and sore, probably just benign growths like skin tags. If they are growing or changing color, have them checked out by a doctor

I have little white bumps on the corner of my right eye. It isnt affecting my vision, but is sore and slightly painful to the touch. What could it be?

Eyeball or lid?

Vision
If the little white bumps are on the edge of the lid, it could be blepharitis/Meibomian gland dysfunction. Try hot compresses and gentle q-tip scrubs after a shower to try to get rid of these. An ophthalmologist (eye MD) can help if this doesn't work. IF the bumps are on your eyeball, they may be a pingueculae, which are benign and found at the 3:00 and 9:00 positions next to your cornea

Why do i have these tiny bumps in the corner of my eyes?

Cysts and others

Head-eye
Cysts are common around the eyes, and these are usually fluid filled and of various size. On the white of the eye, small growths called pinguecula are on either side of the colored part of the eye, and may be yellowish. These are benign and rarely cause any problem. On the lids, some people will have tiny viral growths called papillomas, which are also benign.

Dr. Alan Mindlin answered:

I have red skin and bumps around the outer corner of my eyes. I suspect this irritation is from my tears. What are the causes and remedies for this?

Lacrimal gland

Redness
Get evaluated for focused treatment by an ophthalmologist. This is not as rare as you might believes.This can be from your tears. This would indicate infection under the lateral aspect of the eyelids where the lacrimal glands are located.

What could clear bumps inside upper eye lid be?

conjunctival bumps

Eyes
The bumps on the under surface of the eye lid can be either cystic or solid, Cystic bumps are are benign and are due to fluid secreting cells retaining their secretion. Solid bumps are usually lymphocytic in nature, benign, and related to allergies or a viral infection or chemical irritation (like eye make up). Careful slit lamp biomicroscopic examination can differentiate the diagnosis.
