I was feeling my eyelids and noticed that under my left lid there's a very tiny bump, feels like the size of a grain of sand. What could this be?

Most likely a stye: A stye is a tiny gland in the eyelid which gets blocked off and begins to swell. They are generally harmless, but may get infected (red, swollen, painful). A stye will often go away if a warm compress (washcloth soaked in hot water) is applied for 10-15 minutes 4 times daily for 1-2 weeks. If it is not improving, or if it gets worse, see your primary care doctor or an eye specialist. ...Read more

Try a moisturizer: It sounds like you may be having a reaction to something that you've come into contact with. Eyelids are often irritated by something on the hands such as soaps, cleaning solutions, etc, because we often rub our eyes with our hands. I suggest trying not to touch your eyelids and frequently apply a moisturizer such as an eye lubricant or vaseline. See a physician if not improving. ...Read more

Hello.Recently i started feeling pain in my left eye. Once under the eye and once in the eyelid. Both times it disappeared quickly. Should i be worrie?

A few possibilities: This could be due to allergies, dry eyes, or eye infection or sinusitis. The treatments are very different. You need an eye exam. For allergies, zaditor is a good otc eye medicine. For dry eyes, lubricating tears are necessary. For infection, usually of the eyelids, start with eyelid warm compress and diluted baby shampoo scrubs. You should have a baseline exam with your eye doctor. ...Read more

Is it possible for eyelids to flicker without feeling your eye muscles spasm? I've been under a lot of stress.

Is it possible for eyelids to flicker without feeling your eye muscles spasm? I've been under a lot of stress.

Myokymia: Random twitching of an eyelid, which happens in normal people, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Myokymia starts and stops spontaneously. In the eyelids, it can last a few minutes to a few days. It can be caused by stress, dry eyes, lack of sleep. ...Read more

A doctor told me that i had calcium deposites in my eye (underneath the eyelid) because i had a feeling of a strange body, could this be true?

Concretions: You probably do have calcium deposits usually at the transition zone between the cartilage of the lid and the softer area above that. We are not sure why they form but they can be felt sometimes. Your ophthalmologist can remove them in the office if they are bothering you. We call them concretions. ...Read more

24 y/o eyelid's been twitching for months now I'm getting more body twitches, feeling pressure in head and strong pulse throughout my body, anxiety?

24 y/o eyelid's been twitching for months now I'm getting more body twitches, feeling pressure in head and strong pulse throughout my body, anxiety?

See your doctor: Eye twitches can be a sign of stress, and fatigue and lack of sleep. So by itself it's benign and known as myokymia. But if your entire body is twitching you need to be seen by a doctor and see if your anxiety is making it worse or not. Go ahead and see the doctor, and this will make you feel better. ...Read more
