Customer Question

When I close my right eye I can feel a lump on my eye. It does not hurt at all aside from a few days ago when my eye lid was sore. And it feels like I have soap in my eyes when I cry.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eyelid swollen at all?
Customer: No it is not swollen at all. I'm not sure. A few weeks.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nope. I'm very healthy and active
