Hi doctor,

I have some mild generalized pain in the left eye, which is noticeable when blinking or moving the eye. There appear to be a few small blister-like bumps on the white of the eye. There is some slight yellowing in the area of the bumps, and red irritated looking blood vessels surrounding that. I have attached a picture of my eye.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • This seems to be Pinguecula (raised thickening of the conjunctiva). These are small elastotic nodular lesions. They are usually innocuous but may get inflamed occasionally known as pingueculitis.
  • You may require the following medications based on your symptoms. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.
  1. Eyedrop Ketorolac or Flurbiprofen - an anti-inflammatory and a pain killer.
  2. Lubricating drop containing CMC (Carboxymethylcellulose)
  3. Low potency steroid if acute episcleritis happens.
  4. Naphazoline based drops if there is mild congestion without pain.
