Hello,

 

Is it present in both eyes or just one?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Just one... its just under the eyelid in the very inner portion of the eye. Looks like a white head pimple, small and no inflammation or irritation
Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 6 years ago.

Is it present on the white of the eye or on the undersurface of the lid?

 

Is it fleshy looking or it is like a bump?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

looks like a small white bump, exactly what you would see on the head of a pimple (white head) thats ready to be popped

Oh and its right on the inner carnucle / not the eye ball.

Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 6 years ago.

It looks like you have a mild infection in that area. Another possibility is that you are referring to plica semilunaris which is a vestigeal organ in that area of the eye. It does not seem to be a cause for concern. There may be slight itching. If yes, you can use an anti-biotic drop like Vigamox for a few days. You can see an ophthalmologist to confirm the diagnosis. Thanks and best wishes.

Just to confirm... its on the carnucle of the eye...

It could be on the caruncle of the eye or just adjacent to it. Thanks.
