In brief: Don't

The bump is called a pingueculum, something you have in each corner of both eyes.
They are the callus of the eye; a protective growth in the middle years against wind, dust and light radiation. Most are very small but a few are cosmetically large and can be reduced. Check with your ophthalmologist if yours bothers you.
