Bumps on cornea

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on cornea

bumps

Avatar n tn If you saw an ophthalmologist get a second opinion from another ophthalmologist. Most likely they saw bumps called guttatta <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cornea</span>. 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.
Avatar f tn but nothing is changing, I have just noticed raised bumps around his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cornea</span> 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.
Avatar f tn My son has these little bumps on his face near the eye and nose.
Avatar n tn I've been seeing my eye Dr since June of 07 with small black head type looking bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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.
233488 tn?1310696703 Family history is useful as many cases of Fuchs' are hereditary (affecting females more than males). Guttata are 'bumps' that develop <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cornea</span> 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.

Avatar f tn My husband said that its on both outer and inner corners but more noticable <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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?
Avatar n tn Filaments on the botton of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cornea</span> often means exposure keratitis due to the lids separating when you sleep. Discuss starting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> restasis; long term it usually the best option.
Avatar m tn it started out with the feeling of bugs crawling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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.
Avatar f tn there is a spot on my nose that i've rubbed raw washing, trying to get these "things" out of my pores. these are not whiteheads, nor blackheads. these are clusters of white or fleshy hard and sticky plugs-- not filled with anything, but they stick straight out from the pores. They are not bumps. If I rub the area w/ a towel they do not rub off at all. I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin.
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the eye) or a pterygium (sun damaged tissue growing onto the cornea.

Avatar m tn Not all cornea surgeons have learned how to do this. Ask the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cornea</span> Eye MDs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Also, two small bumps which looked like pimples were forming <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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.
Avatar n tn It is possible for a 22 year old to exhibit the first signs of Fuchs Dystrophy which are 'bumps' called guttatta <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back side of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cornea</span>. 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.

Avatar n tn I have the symptoms of eyelid conjunctivitis but maybe I have been misdiagnosed? Any light <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the situation would be great. Thanks so much for your service <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> here it makes asking these sort of questions easier.
Avatar f tn 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.......
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cornea</span> 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.
Avatar n tn - 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.
Avatar f tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the large lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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.
Avatar m tn many of us, especially as we age, develop bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cornea</span> (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.
Avatar n tn Can you tell me what tanning bed critters are? I have several small raised looking bumps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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....
Avatar m tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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.
