The Cause Of The Appearance Of A Yellow Bump On The White Part Of The Eyeball That Feels Painful?
I am 21 years old, with a history of my father having diabetes, and my mother has a history of high blood pressure and cholesterol but not severe. It’s been almost 2 weeks my eyes have yellow spots and red veins that appear. Initially from my eyes there were blood-red spots but at first it didn’t hurt. After 2 days my eyes were sore and rough. Then on the 4th day my head was dizzy from the back of the head, neck, top of the head to the forehead and the bones of the nose and eyes. When I open my eyes I feel dizzy and sensitive to light and my body feels weak and my breathing becomes short. When treated, it was said that my eye pressure was normal. And only told to eat fruit and vegetables, but there was no change but now my right eyeball feels bigger than my left side and it feels lumpy in the upper eyelid. Dizziness is also not lost. What exactly am I sick with? Please response.
Hello Nurul Lutfiyati,
Yellow lumps on the white part of the eyeball usually arise due to pinguecular disease. Pinguecula is an abnormal growth of the conjunctival layer, which generally forms on the inside (closer to the nose) of the eye. Pinguecular thought to be formed due to excessive exposure to ultraviolet (sun), irritation of dust and wind.
Symptoms of pingueculae are:
Yellowish bumps on the whites of the eyes, may be accompanied by dilation of blood vessels around the lumps especially when being inflamed (pingueculitis) Foreign body sensation in the eye Dry eyes due to tear film disturbance Itching and red eyes (lightness) Diagnosis of pingueculae is easy to do from physical examination eye by a doctor. Pinguecula does not threaten vision because it does not grow to cover the eye's eye lane. Pingkuela generally does not require any treatment except observation and administration of lubrication / artificial tears to reduce the symptoms of dry eye experienced by patients. If it is very disturbing or inflammation often occurs, surgery can be done to remove the pinguecula.
We recommend that you check the condition of your eyes with an eye specialist. Pinguecula does not cause enlargement of one side of the eyeball and does not cause pain in the eyeball. Re-examination of the pressure of the two eyeballs needs to be done to ensure there is no increase in eye pressure that causes the bulging of the eyeball and complaints of headaches that spread from the eye. Patients with eyeball pressure that is left high continuously without treatment can experience eye nerve damage that can cause blindness. If there is a lump on the eyelid, you should also check with your doctor directly so that the doctor can check and determine the right diagnosis.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
