Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Did she rub her eye?
yes, a few times over a 20 min. period
It seems to be getting better, but she is concerned about the HOW it occurred? Alergic reaction or what?
She is an RN has worked Opthamology in the past, never seen this.
This is likely from rubbing the eye.
It can actually happen quite rapidly in response to trauma to the eye such as eye rubbing. It's essentially a histamine reaction that causes the bump. It can come on over seconds, but take days (sometimes) to fullly go away).
Does this make sense?
Thanks! It calms some nerves. GOOD To KNOW! If it doesn't clear by tomorrow she will follow up with local Opthamologist. which was the next suggested option by the PA. I will except answer with a Excellent ! Thanks again! XXXXX!
