I awoke this am to find a clear jelly like mass over my right eye. I do not wear contacts and just had an eye exam earlier this month with only my normal floaters appearing. I am just starting my vacation, do I need to see a doctor immediately?
JA: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?
Customer: Just this month and my prescription changed just a little for the first time in 5 yrs.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

This is Dr. David

it sounds like you developed a cyst on your eye overnight.

did the cyst fall off this morning?

if it fell off you don't have to worry.

hopefully your vision is fine. if your vision is fine, you don't have to see your doctor immediately.

let me know if you have questions
