White bump: A sty is an infection at the base of an eye lash. It is on the eyelid. You can get cystic lesions on the lids looking like white bumps. On the eye itself in that location, the most common white bump would be a benign lesion called pingueculum.

White bump: White bumps in the corner of the eye most often is due to a clogged gland: most often a meibomian gland at base of eyelash which causes a sty; or sweat or sebaceous gland). Clogging often due to the normal bacteria of our body getting into the glands (blepharitis). This can also cause the eyelids to get stuck together. See eyedoc2020.Blogspot. Com for more info.

Eyeball or lid?: If the little white bumps are on the edge of the lid, it could be blepharitis/meibomian gland dysfunction. Try hot compresses and gentle q-tip scrubs after a shower to try to get rid of these. An ophthalmologist (eye md) can help if this doesn't work. If the bumps are on your eyeball, they may be a pingueculae, which are benign and found at the 3:00 and 9:00 positions next to your cornea.

Inflamed pinguecula: You may have had a pinguecula (a white /tan bump on the white of the eye related to sun exposure /allergies/ and other irritants) that is now inflamed. If the eye is red and painful you should get an eye exam to determine the exact cause and etiology of your pain

Various causes: This is a common question that really does not have a very specific answer without an exam. Bumps come in many forms, many are benign, & a few are concerning for possible malignancy. 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.

Growth on eye: This small white bump may represent a small cyst or blister. In this case, there is nothing to do about it as long as it's not bothering you. This also may represent a normal structure on your eye. If it persists, have an ophthalmologist evaluate it.

BLEPHARITIS V STY: Based on symptoms it may be blepharitis vs STYE. Warm compresses will help. But you need to be examined it may require topical and oral antibiotics. If it is a STYE it may need to be injected or removed.

Pinguecula: Sounds like a pinguecula, which is a deposit/build up on the white part of the eye (sclera) due to uv light and dryness of the eyes. You can use artificial tears, and use a cap and/or sunglasses when outdoors.
