What Causes Bumps On The Eye?
Bumps on the eye are caused by several factors. Most commonly, they are due to:
Eye trauma (e.g., being hit by a car) Infection (e.g.
conjunctivitis or corneal ulcers) Eye strain (e.g., from wearing contact lenses too long) Chronic inflammation (e.g., psoriasis, eczema, herpes simplex virus type 1, lupus vulgaris)
In some cases, bumps on the eye may not be due to any cause at all; however, it’s still good to know about them so that you can prevent them from happening in the future.
Treating Bumps On The Eye
The first thing you need to do if you have bumps on your eye is to see a doctor immediately. If there is no visible cause for the bumps, then you will want to try one of these treatments:
1. Antibiotics – These drugs kill bacteria and other germs that could potentially cause infection.
They are usually given orally or through injection.
2. Steroid injection – Also known as a cortisone shot, this treatment reduces swelling and redness.
It is used to treat sudden attacks of inflammation.
3. Cleaning – An infection may have occurred due to your eye being dirty.
You should thoroughly clean the area and avoid getting your eye irritated in the future.
Bumps on the eye are quite serious if not treated properly. If you start to experience problems with your vision or notice any other signs of trouble, make sure to see a doctor right away.
