what is a small lump on eyeball under top eye lid, I noticed it on my mom's left eye today and she says it is a little sore to the touch. just came up overnight. you can actually see it just by looking at her eyes. thank you, Paula


It is most likely a stye. It should resolve within 2-4 days. Warm compresses will help. An anti-biotic eye ointment should be applied. A course of oral anti-biotic may also be required. You can see an ophthalmologist to confirm the diagnosis. Thanks and best wishes.
