Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Do you have any change in vision?
When did this start?
vision blurs some -started years ago but more painful now and can be seen more with successful sinus treatment but eye doctor does not act
what are you doing for your eyes? drops? ointment?
restasis, elestat, moisture gel
do you have sjogren's or other autoimmune disease?
it sounds like you have severe dry eyes. this can sometimes cause styes and blocked oil glands of the eyelids. The bump may be that.
To treat the stye, you should use warm compresses regularly to soften the plugged oil glands.
If the infection spreads, you may need to be on an oral antibiotic.
Continue your other eye drops and ointment for now.
would this show on ct
no. styes are on the eyelids so easily seen. CT scans are good to look for sinusitis.
I just completed 5 days tabramycin
not eyelid, eyeball, yes drops
ok, then that bump may be a conjunctival cyst, similar to a blister.
cool compresses and chilled artificial tears can help for the symptoms.
would this show on mri
if it worsens, call you doctor or go to the urgent care.
if it is easily seen, then an MRI is not necessary.
is the bump easily seen under the eyelid?
if I look down real far i can see and feel it under the lid
thru the lid
it sounds like something the doctor will be able to see, so an MRI is not likely needed at this time.
