Lumps Appear On The Cornea Of the Eye?
excuse me, I want to ask. some days the whites of my eyes are reddish, and there are like small lumps / fat on the black parts of my eyeballs. feels a little when I blink like a pile. What is that about? and how to treat it. thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The black part of the eyeball is called the iris and on the front of the iris there is a clear layer called the cornea. A lump in the cornea of the eye can be caused by several possibilities:
the presence of a foreign body in the corena (for example corena punctured by something or intruding impurities that stick to the corneas of the eye)
To know for certain what lumps are in your eyes, you must do a direct examination. If there is indeed a history of entry into a foreign body, you can try to wash your eyes in running water first. If the object can not be separated, do not try to rub or pull out the object, but go to the eye doctor to do eye cleaning. If there is no history of foreign entry before, then the possibility that appears in your eyes is pterygium or pinguecula. both can occur due to chronic eye irritation, for example the eyes are often exposed to sunlight, wind, dust, you experience dry eyes, you have allergies, etc.
Pterygium or pinguecula does not require certain therapy if it does not interfere, but if both of them often cause irritation to the eye, feel uncomfortable or interfere with vision, then you can be advised to do the surgical removal of pterygium or pinguecula.
We recommend that you check your eyes to the ophthalmologist to find out more precisely the cause of the lump in your eye and separately get therapy that is more in accordance with the cause.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
