Howdy howdy all.  I was wondering if anyone has experienced this and if you think it may be CD related.  I know what a stye is, but this is sort of not the same.  I noticed this feeling for about a week now, like something was in my eye at all times, even though nothing was there.  Well we were dressing up for halloween last night and I just so happened to catch a glimpse of underneath my bottem eyelid.  There are two small kind of white areas. They are not raised or leaky or anything.  I have no clue what they are, but it does explain my eye feeling like something is in it.  I was wondering if anyone has experienced this? Could it be ulcers of some sort?
My eyes have been a bit more eye boogery in the morning.  Thanks for reading this :).

Yeah, could be ulcers. See an eye doctor. They can give you good stuff like steroids, eye lube, etc.

I have that prob. too, you do need to get into the eye dr.  You need to get muro eye ointment trust me you don't want to wake up in the morning and feel like your eyelid just pulled something off of your eye.  IF it gets to that point it will hurt to blink.  It could be your crohn's or the meds.  I'm not really sure what is causing mine.  Hope your eye is doing better now

Go to an Opthamologist, not an Optomotrist. You may even end up with a retina specialist who specializes in autoimmune issues.

I started out like you but when it was finally diagnosed as posterior Scleritis, I had gone blind in that eye.

Take it from me. I know it's rare but play it safe. 

If you find that as your diagnoses, PM me and I will give you the benefit of my experince. Read my Bio below.

Thanks for your replys! I will definitely get this checked out. Always better to be safe than sorry. I'll make sure to find a Opthamologist and not an optomotrist too. Thank you for the tip and I'm so sorry you guys have had these experiences with this :(. Thank you so much for your advice!
