White raised area on the eye, seems to be a swollen vein, have blurred vision followed by headache. Advice?

I have a small white raised area on my left eye which looks like a big pimple on my eye ball and closer inspection revealed that it actually looks like a small swollen vein (although it s whiteish in colour, not red). Also, I had blurred vision in my left eye earlier which lasted for an hour, then a headache . I m feeling much better now, although the raised area is still present on my eyeball.

The blurred vision which you experienced before a headache could be because of migraine.
As a rule the blurring of vision should come down to normal after the attack..So don't worry about that.
If you still have a blurred vision, get checked up for any refractive error.
Is the raised area on the eyelid? It could be a chronic inflammatory swelling of the glands.. or it could be an engorged vein also.
You can try doing some warm compresses for that.
Hope I helped with my answer. Take care..
