Brief Answer:
It is probably a pinguecula.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health care magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

I reviewed your history. It seems from the history that you are having a white jelly like lump on the white part of the eye.
It is most probably degenerative condition of the conjunctiva in the form of pinguecula.

If possible do send a photo of the affected eye so that I can advice you more accurately.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards
