Contact lens user, had sinus infection , lump on eye. Causes?

Hi I am a contact lens wearer and am used to red eye, but this one Is different I seem to have a raised lump on the white of my eye to the ear side of my eye, it doesn't feel scratchy but painful when I shut my eys tightly, I have had a bad sinus infection and wonder if that could be causing inflammation of the white of the eye.

Thank you

I am a 40 year old male non smoker

Dear Paul,Hi, Raised lump on the white part of the eye in contact lens wearer may be due to limbitis, inflamed pingueculitis,nodular episcletitis, Foreign body granuloma etc. I would first recommend you to stop wearing CL as the fit maynot be good and the lens wear out may be there causing irritation.If the lens is too tight it may cause tight lens syndrome which causes redness in the eye while wearing CL.As for now take off your CL, use some antibiotic drops 4 times a day along with tear substitute and take an appointment in Cl clinic for further evaluation and management....TC...Dr Ajay Shankar kar
