I have something white in the inner corner of my eye. It appeared about two weeks ago, but it is not itchy, with no swelling and no pus coming out of it.
My eyes do get tired and dry quite often.
Can you tell me what it could be? I am going to attach a photo, too.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through the attached image (attchment removed to protect the patient's identity). It seems to be a small mass in the caruncle of the eye.
If it is irritating, it can be removed.
Do hot compresses and use Fucithalmic (antibiotic) eye gel. If it is still there, then better to be excised.
Thank you for your answer.
Why did it appear there, and does it have a name?
