Are you referring to white spots on the white of your eyes? Or on the lids?
on the lids
It sounds like either concretions or cysts. Either way it is usually caused by tiny glands whose pores have gotten clogged. The gland then swells up and can fill up with oil or a type of fatty material (just like a pimple). The simplest treatment is with lots of hot compresses. If what you are doing is helping, you can continue it also.
Hope this helps and thank you.
ok, so the boric acid compresses should solve the problem.
Keeping it hot will also help.
