There's a bump with a white cloud look on my eye causing alot of blurresd vision is this a concern to go to the emergency room?

Go to ER: What you are describing sounds like it could be a corneal infection, which can be common in contact lens wearers. If you are experiencing blurred vision and the white cloud on the cornea (clear structure in front of your iris, or colored part of your eye), I would advise you to go to seek eye care. If the symptoms have been quickly progressive, go to the ER for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

ERs are full of trauma and possible contagion - if you need it, they are life saving. If not, go to a less stressful place. Here, Dr Dariush Saghafi is an expert and there are others - he's a gem. ...Read more

My eyes having a problem in vision little blurred and some different kind of warms type of images are appearing in my vision dry eyes and irritation?

Perhaps: Dry eyes can cause blurred vision, but in combination with seeing images of "worms" there is a concern that there might be other problems.
