Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It sounds like you have a conjunctival cyst. Is there any pain or redness of the eye?
what type of surgery did you have?
are you still there?
Thanks....What type of surgery? Eyelids? Face lift? can you be more specific?
Ok. Thanks. In this case I really wouldn't expect you to have any ocular involvment at all nor require steroid eye drops (dex). That being said, I think the bubble you are noticing on the whit of your eyeball is a conjunctival cyst, possibly from blockage of the lymph drainage secondary to the surgery.
In the vast majority of cases this will resolve on it's own. If not an ophthalmologist can "pop" it (they tend to come back....) or excise the cyst with local anesthesia in the office.
Does this make sense to you?
Good. I hope your surgery turns out well. Have a good day.
