Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
usually it is caused by some small, usually unnoticed, trauma to the skin (conjunctiva) on the eyeball.
Sometimes they will go away on their own. If they don't it is a simple thing for your ophthalmologist to "pop" them in the office using the slit lamp. Many times this takes care of it however, on occasion, they can recur. If they do then simple excision can be done if needed.
Does this make sense to you?
I see that you are typing and that could mean a couple of things: 1. you are actually typing or, 2, the chat system has frozen up. I'll give it a few more minutes and if I've not seen anything from you I'll switch over to the Q&A system. That system works a lot like 'text messaging' but, unlike the chat system, it almost never freezes up. We can continue to work on your question there. :o)
Yes, I was worried that I may have had a foreign object several days prior to the bleed and discovery of the cyst.
Normally it is nothing to worry about.
Is there anything else you would like to ask me or would you like me to give more details?
