I've recently developed a small white bump/cyst (looks like millia or whitehead) on the caruncle of my left eye. What is it's cause and treatment options? Will this eventually resolve?

In brief: See your Eyedoc

The lacrimal carbuncle is frequently the site of inclusion cysts, sometimes with calcified concretions.
This can make the carbuncle swell up to many times it's normal size. These respond quite nicely to removal in your ophthalmologist's office. Make an appointment, you will feel much better when it is gone.
