White bumps under cornea, irritation, scratchy feeling. Done LASIK. Related?

I have a few small white round 1mm bumps under the epithelium layer of the cornea . They move under the epithelium of the cornea and are located in the outside corner of my right eye, away from the iris. Irritated when I blink and feels very scratchy. Appeared two years after LASIK surgery but that eye was very irritated after the surgery for a very long time. I m wondering if it s related.

How is your vision? Is is getting affected because of the bumps what you said?
You can use some artificial tear substitutes for relief..
The irritation which you had after LASIK could be because of post-LASIK dry eyes which is very common and improves over time..
Consult your doctor if there is any vision problem or if the irritation doesn't come down.
Take care...
