Bumps on cornea

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on cornea

bumps

If you saw an ophthalmologist get a second opinion from another ophthalmologist. Most likely they saw bumps called guttatta on the back of your cornea. These occur where there are not enough cells to cover the back of the cornea. Many guttatta can indicate Fuchs' Dystrophy. Use the search feature on this page to look for "Fuch's Dystrophy" to read about this problem. Many people have a small numbmer of guttatta but don't have or lead to Fuchs Dystrophy.
but nothing is changing, I have just noticed raised bumps around his cornea in both eyes, he doesn't seem irritated by it but I am of course concerned and I also thought it was becasue he is irritating his eyes. If you could give me any indication of what this may be that would be great.
My son has these little bumps on his face near the eye and nose.
I've been seeing my eye Dr since June of 07 with small black head type looking bumps on both my lower lids. I did the hot compresses, which didn't seem to do much. I tried the fish oil, which made my skin break out so she put me on Doxycycline 2 a day, 100 mg and to use Tobradex only on the lash line. This was after 4 trips to see her. I'm very frustrated. I do wear eye make up but, only on my top lashes. I change my mascara every 3 month and wash my face/eyes twice a day.
Family history is useful as many cases of Fuchs' are hereditary (affecting females more than males). Guttata are 'bumps' that develop on the back of the cornea when there are not enough endothelial cells to cover it. These cells are very important as they pump fluid out of the cornea and into the anterior chamber of the eye. The cornea is hydrophilic (water loving) like a sponge. When it swells and gets thicker it starts to become cloudy and blur the vision.
My husband said that its on both outer and inner corners but more noticable on the inner corners. I am assuming that they are more bumps then spots because of it hurting when i put my contact in, and only hurt on the inner corner. What is it and how important is?
Filaments on the botton of the cornea often means exposure keratitis due to the lids separating when you sleep. Discuss starting on restasis; long term it usually the best option.
it started out with the feeling of bugs crawling on me then i got these kind of sore bumps in my armpits only and it also felt like my throat glands were bigger as well as my armpit glands. the glands/armpit bumps went away but now it feels like the bugs are goin into my ears and into my nose and now they feel like there going into my anus and i have to use rubbing alcohol to get rid of the stinging and intense itching in that area plus i still have them all over my body to.
If no specific cause is identified other than sun damage, then there is not much that can be done. Surgery sometimes can be done for very inflamed and large pinguecula (sun damaged, yellow bumps on the eye) or a pterygium (sun damaged tissue growing onto the cornea.

Not all cornea surgeons have learned how to do this. Ask the cornea Eye MDs on the phone or in person whether they can do DSAEK. This is a recent post on Fuchs, there is a wealth of material on optic neuritis and cataracts which you can access with the search, archives and health topic features on this page. JCH III MD There is no exact definition of how many guttatta it takes to diagnosis Fuchs' Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy. Some guttatta are part of aging and do not ever become a problem.
my eyelids could'nt stop from having bumps, upper and lower parts. after just a couple of days, or weeks, it would again appear, and this disturbs me a lot. it's very uncomfortable. we went to an opthalmologist once and asked about this, he said that this was due to my large pores, and gave me an eyedrop. but then after a couple of weeks, my eye problem returns again and wont stop. could you please help me with the possible cure for my large pores and how to stop it from having eyelid bumps.
Also, two small bumps which looked like pimples were forming on lower part of conjuctive tissue close to nasal passage. The surgeon took me off of all steroid drops since pressure was still elevated. Also, thinks I may be having an allergic reaction to remaining sutures in eye ( which were supposed to be entirely dissolved at this point.) He put me on tears and Acular for the pain. Now, the two red bumps/pimples have formed into one large protruding bump/growth. Now, I'm uncertain what to do.
It is possible for a 22 year old to exhibit the first signs of Fuchs Dystrophy which are 'bumps' called guttatta on the back side of the cornea. Your daughter should be check by an ophthalmologist (Eye physician and surgeon) for a baseline examination. She may need a corneal cell count or/and corneal thickness measurement. If other individuals with Fuchs' have NOT had to have a corneal transplant (or the very new DSAEK procedure) this bodes well for your daughter.

I have the symptoms of eyelid conjunctivitis but maybe I have been misdiagnosed? Any light on the situation would be great. Thanks so much for your service on here it makes asking these sort of questions easier.
Hi, I am a 21 y/o F and for the past 3 days now I have had some severe pain in BOTH eyelids. There are no bumps or obvious injury to the eyelids however when I woke up this morning my eyelids appeared a bit swollen and red accompanied by pain......I have tried cold compresses on my eyes, wet washcloths, taken ibuprofen and nothing is seeming to help the pain. If someone can help me out I would GREATLY appreciate it seeing as I am completely in the dark as to what is going on. Thank you.......
When i was around 14 or so (i'm 23 male) i was diagnosed with Herpes on my eye (not around teh eye, but litereally on the eye, i guess this is a special form taht gets on the cornea and lens?) it never developed into the real bad boy. About 2 months ago i had a recurrence that the doctor treated with an antiviral eye drop and a steroid. It shortly went away, and he has put me on 500mg of Valtrex once a day for the next year to keep it from happening again and causing some real porblems.
- Redness - Constant burning/sore feeling in the corner of my left eye (sometimes itchy) - Frequent sore/dry eye lids of my left eye with tiny small bumps in one area - Frequent sore throat - Eye sensitivity to light and wind/cold (watery eyes - I've always had this issue since I can remember) This may be illrelivant, but I also have minor bi-polar and sleep insomnia which I am being treated for.
many of us, especially as we age, develop bumps on the back of the cornea (guttatta) while one ophthalmologist may think the number normal for the age another might diagnosis Fuch's it is not a yes-no type of diagnosis, neither is cataract, neither is glaucoma. It would be a mistake to call what happened a mistake.
I had some conjunctivitis eye cream ( I know you're not supposed to use human ointments) but because it was outside the eye I put it on the large lump on the eyelid and after a week it has gone! As you have suggested I will get the small lump removed when I go to the vet in the next couple of weeks. Thanks again for your informative reply.
Can you tell me what tanning bed critters are? I have several small raised looking bumps on my vulva and was told this was very contagious and I need to know what type of diagnosis it is and appartenly you get this from uncleaned tanning beds or using someone elses towel? To remove the bumps they are going to freeze them off....
I am a 19 year male and 3 weeks ago I experience pain behind my eye (almost like I got punched in the eye). Days following that pain it got worse, plus I started noticing bumps on my face. After the 5th day I went to the doctors who then told me it was shingles. He prescribed me drugs and eye drops for ten days. The pain went away and the bumps went away. Now I have had it for 3 weeks and it is extremely itchy.
I remember as a kid getting it in 1 eye & then a week later, the other eye. It's either viral or bacterial. Just like a cold or flu virus to the eye. If it's bacterial, you usually have an ear/nose/throat (one of these) w/ it. It's transmitted person to person quickly. Rub your infected eye, shake someones hand, they rub their eye, they get it. It starts in the inner lining of eye & can really go after the white of eye. Dr. needs to determine viral vs bacterial.
After most sessions, I get these two red spots, one on my left shoulder blade and the other on my left elbow, that are INCREDIBLY itchy and have a few tiny raised bumps in them. I have absolutely no idea why this is! I saw on another forum where someone said it might be due to the cleaning solution they use, so I brought wipes and cleaned the bed myself when I went today, but I have the same two spots. What's going on?
