67yo with spot in vision. No flashing or h/a can see peripherally ok. Could this be just a floater. Keep rubbing eye no luck. No pain.

See Eye Dr. soon: If a spot always appears in the SAME place in the center of your visual field, rather than just floating by, you may have a problem with the Macula in that eye. This is a small area of your retina that allows you to see fine detail clearly. Such as reading fine print or threading a needle. The main causes are: age related macular degeneration and macular hole or pucker. SEE http://bit.ly/1tiadJy ...Read more

Small, bubble like pink/flesh toned bump inside corner of eye, near nose. Not painful, no irritation, other eye does  not have. What could it be?

A cyst: Cysts around the eyes and eyelids are quite common. They generally are due to obstruction of a hair follicle, or glands such as sebaceous or sweat glands. A bubble appearance sounds most like a retention cyst to me. It may likely need to be excised surgically, so I would schedule an appointment with your ophthalmologist for evaluation and treatment. Good wishes:) ...Read more
