Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com
Are you available for chat now?
I truly appreciate your courage in facing all the medical issues you have been through. As for the possibility of any eye damage due to use of the sonic infuser, I really doubt that. In fact we make use of ultrasound waves for diagnositc and treatment modalities in the eye.
A painless lump on the eye ( not on the eyelid) could be due to a pinguecula ( a benign degenerative condition of the conjunctiva). However its location is more often between the inner corner of the eye and the junction of the white part of the eye and the colored part of the eye. The upper eyelid would feel firm normally also due to the presence of the tarsal plate ( a very firm tissue present in the upper eye lid). So I guess it does not appear to be any kind of an ocular emergency.
To confirm whether the firmness of the eyes is due to raised intraocular pressure (IOP) , it is better to get the IOP measured at the next visit to the ophthalmologist. Glaucoma however is not known to cause any kind of localised lump on the eye.
Please feel free to ask follow up questions if any. Thank you and best wishes. It was a pleasure to have answered this question.

Could this be a side effect of any of my meds? This appears to have come on suddenly, it is between the inner corner of left eye and iris but closer to inner porton and very pronounced when raising eyebrow to feel entire lid, and looking down and to the left. The lump is a hard spot and running along side (vertically) is like a narrow valley about 5mm long.
My eyes feel irritated and I'm squinting along due to some burning but in both eyes. I am available to chat.
Yes, I just wasn't sure that breast cancer could spread to the eye but a quick Google search shows it can met to eye. I will set an appt with my opthamologist next week and hope for something other than met cancer. Thank you for your insight. Have a good weekend.
