Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Are you available to chat?
I guess that you have stepped away from your computer.
It sounds like you may be suffering from dacryocystitis, which is an infection/inflammation of the lacrimal sac. This structure is where the tears from your eyes drain. When it becomes plugged up it can get infected and form a hard lump along the edge of your nose, by the corner of your eye.
Treatment involves warm compresses and oral antibiotics. Sometimes the sac need to be probed by your ophthalmologist and, in some cases, surgery (dacyrocystorhinostomy) is necessary.
I suggest you contact an ophthalmologist in the morning and have her take a look at it.
Does this make sense to you?
