I Have Lump On My Eyeball Under My Uper Left Eye Lid What Cause This Be
A few things: If this was preceeded by a mild inflammation or pain in that area now gone, then it is most likely a cystic formation called a chalazion.

I just noticed a very tiny bump under my left eye lid. No pain, no protrusion. But my eyes are dry and irritable. What could this be? Who should I see

sensation of something in eye and itchy eyes. Got like a brown mark which I can see if I pull my left eye lid up it is on the white of my eye?
Need more info: Sounds uncomfortable! Was the brown mark there before? Many people have small birthmarks in the white part of their eyes, which aren't worrisome. Itchy eyes and a feeling of grit in the eyes could be many things - allergies, small foreign particles, small cuts on the eye surface, etc. I'm not sure the brown spot is related if it is in the same place and doesn't move. ...Read more
