White Bumpy Eyeball?
I want to ask. At the time when I had an insect in my eye, and I rubbed it, finally it was red, I felt something was stuck and there was a slight swelling. When I saw it, it turned out that the white eyeball had a lump… Do you think it’s dangerous, what’s the solution?
Hi Eca, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
What do you mean by white bumpy eyeballs, the possibilities are many, namely:
Allergy due to insect bites
Scleritis or inflammation of the sclera (white part of the eyeball), which is usually caused by infection, chemical irritation, or autoimmune disease
Pterygium is an eye disease characterized by the appearance of a membrane on the eyeball.
Pinguiekula, is a yellowish white triangular membrane growth
To determine the cause of your eye symptoms, an immediate examination must be carried out, you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist, especially if the lump in your eyeball is accompanied by pain and blurred vision. The eye doctor will perform a physical examination of your eyeball , and supporting examinations such as blood tests, to determine the cause.
What you currently have to do is:
Don't rub your eyes
Do not give eye drops or eye ointment carelessly, other than a prescription from the doctor who examined you
Wear sunglasses when you leave the house'
Avoid exposure to dust and smoke
Avoid lingering in front of a computer screen or gadget
