See your eye special: Ist to make sure you don't have an internal stye developing known as a chalazion that is a plugged meibomian gland. You can try to decompress it by using warm compresses for 15 minutes 4 times a day. If that doesn't help, you will need to see your eye doctor, who can drain it, by lancing it carefully to open the gland punta better. See if you can do the compresses now. ...Read more

I have a small white bump (cist) that just appeared on the inside of my left eyelid. Is there anything special I should do to treat this?

Depends where it is: If it is at the edge of the lid near the base of the lashes, and there is no redness, it may be a cyst or an ingrown eyelash. If there is surrrounding redness then it may be a stye. If warm compresses do not improve it within a couple of days, you should have it evaluated by an eye doctor in order to determine how best to treat it. ...Read more

Clogged duct: The eyes have lots of ducts and glands that make materials to keep the eye moist and protect from infection

Always see your doctor if you have concerns- good luck

It benefits you greatly to have it checked out so that you don't just "wonder" what it is. More importantly, if it is unusual, then treatment can be instituted. ...Read more

See eye doctor: If you saw an eye doctor and he was not worried then it is probably nothing serious. If it was a general md you might want a second opinion with an eye doctor. It could be anything from an inflamed pterygium (benign growth on eye), inflammatory reaction from blepharitis, corneal scar, infection or contact lens reaction. If it worsens or is associated with pain or vision loss, see your eye doctor! ...Read more
