Hello,Have you had this problem before?Is the bubble on the whites of the eyes?Do you have any change in vision?
Oh yes I know.
Never in my life!
That's why I'm scared.
No change in vision at all.
yes the bubble is on the white of the eye
towards the bottom left
it looks like it is resting on my eyelid
Um, are you there?
The bubble you see appears to be a conjunctival cyst. This is similar to a blister and can be caused by irritation.
Is it very bad???????
Likely the contact lenses is the source of the irritation.
Well if it's similar to a blister I guess not?
I know you are not giving me advice, but just information ---
I should not wear contacts at all until it's gone?
If it is irritated, it can fill with more fluid and get bigger -- such as today.
so no contacts
yes, it would be a good idea to stay out of contact lens until it improves.
is the eye still red?
let me look
still pretty pink
but a lot less
than when I first asked the question
is it the kind of thing I will need medication for, or will have to see a doctor about right away?
I know you're not responsible for your response to that question
Sorry, I was just wondering; are you having connection problems or something?
You may consider seeing your eye doctor to recheck the contact lenses. If they are fitting too tight, it can cause your eyes to look red. Infections can cause red eyes as well. This usually has discharge, light sensitivity, eye pain, and change in vision.
If you develop those symptoms, then you should be evaluated promptly.
as for the clear bubble, that should get smaller as your eyes are less irritated.
There seems to be a lag on the connection... sorry.
oh no prob
I just thought maybe the condition was puzzling
is it strange to you
or are you pretty familiar with conjunctival cysts?
If it is a conjunctival cyst, then no medication is needed. Just artificial tears to lubricate the eyes.
If you develop increase pain, discharge, light sensitivity, then you should see your doctor to make sure there is no infection.
Will rewetting solution do it, or do I need something else?
I do see conjunctival cysts every once in a while.
Thanks for answering all these questions, I think I will be done soon.
with the questions I mean
so the big pauses were because of the slow connection, not because you were mystified?
ha ha ha ha
Rewetting solution should be fine.
Ok, well right now I definitely do not have any vision problems,
or light sensitivity.
Ok, then I will rewet it and not wear my contacts.
Thank you so much!

oh one last question --- the redness is normal with conjunctival cysts?
No, conjunctival cyst does not cause eye redness.
So that is weird?
I suspect the redness may be due to irritation from the contact lenses. That redness and irration then exacerbates and causes the cyst to swell up.
Contacts don't have an expiration date, do they?
I mean before they're out of the box.
I had these for a while, and just hadn't worn them yet.
Could that be the problem?
Sorry I guess that other question wasn't my last.
They do if you look on the label. They are usually good for a few years if not open. If they are less than a year old, then doubtful that it is expired.
I see. Thank you so much for your help. I do appreciate it. I love this website when it's not having technical problems.
Going to hit accept now.
You're welcome. :)
