8 year old having hard non-movable nodules under the eyes. What are they?

my 8 year old daughter has a hard nodule (not visible to eye, can only be felt) under each eye. Not painful. only noticed each one when i was washing her face and felt them. they are very hard, not moveable like a cyst might be. each is located less than 1/2 inch below each eye in center, right on orbital bone below eye, mid center, not near tear duct. any ideas?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Your child is suffering from chalazion. A picture of the eye would have helped.
Please consult an opthamologist for better examination of the site and advice.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
