During a visit to an ophthalmologist for eye pain-pressure and blurred vision, a blister-like formation and several small bumps were found on one eye. I was told that I had conjunctival cysts in one eye and most likely some sort of seasonal allergy in both. I have been using Livostin and artificial tears since. What causes conjunctival cysts and how long does it typically take for them to disappear?
Conjunctival cysts are common. They may be related to allergic problems, trauma, infection, or disrupted glands. They may last from weeks to many months. I usually recommend observation unless someone is having allergic type symptoms. Livostin may or may not help. Be patient and I would not be overly concerned.
