Stye: this is most likely a stye or infected oil gland in your eye. Usually resolves on its own but you may apply warm compress 3-4 times a day for 10-15 min at a time. See your eye doctor is there's no improvement. ...Read more

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.

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
