Causes numerous.  Treatment dependent upon cause.  See an Eye MD for an evaluation.  You can find one near you at www.aao.org.

Dear fess72,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to determine the diagnosis.  Bumps on the conjunctiva may represent degenerations associated with sun and/or wind exposure such as pinguecula or ptergyia; however, other etiology include cysts, nodules, etc.
