What is the cause for white bump in my eye ? How can It be treated ?

I had a white bump on my eye it was there for 3 years and didn t hurt so I didn t care. But then my vision got a bit funny and my eye shape looked different to the other one in a photo. I didn t do anything before cause I didn t know what to do. I found a dermatologist who used a laser machine and got rid of it in 15minutes. He doesn t speak English and I don t speak Korean which is where I am. So I want to know cause it s so close to the eye. Did I do permanent damage by leaving it for so long? What is the after care I should give it? It looks all flat now but there is still a white spot where it was.

Hi you haven't mentioned what was the white bump! Was it a skin tag/ chalazion.......

Anyway,any eye lid swelling will cause mechanical ptosis(drooping of the lid) which you would have seen as difference in the shape of your eye.

since the swelling (if of significant size)was there for the past 3 yrs it could have caused constant pressure over the cornea and hence some refractive error and the hazy vision.

If it was a Chalazion which was removed,then don't worry it will not recur if you keep your lids clean without any blepharitis. White spot must be post laser remnant.

After care what you need is an ophthalmologist consultation
1. To correct your refractive error if any.
2. To rule out blepharitis and to know the precautionary measures to avoid any future swelling.
3. To get examined for the presence of any ptosis of eye lid.

Hope this helps you. Take care.
