Hey everyone,

I just wanted to see I anyone had any idea what this is:
I have a small bump on the white of my eye. It's about a 1x1x1 mm and is on the inside corner of my eye about halfway between the corner of my eye and the edge of my iris. It's a light brown colour. I first noticed it about 2 months ago and I'm certain it hasn't been there longer than 4 months. It hasn't been causing any pain or irritation but I'm confused as to what it is and if it might develop into something more serious.

Thanks :)

I have those too, they're called Pinguecula's. The only complication from these things are that they may grow over the iris but that is not a common occurrence. For the most part, these are harmless. If they start causing issues, than you should go see the eye doc.
