Fluid Retaining Cyst
I accidentally poked a towel corner in my eye and it became blood red from the iris to the outer corner of the eye.  This cleared up but I had what looked like a fluid sac on the eyeball which could move about, was worse and more noticeable in the mornings, like a bubble.  This was diagnosed as an infection at the public hospital in Cyprus and I was given antiseptic drops for a long period.  These made no difference so I then paid at the private hospital and they said it was a cyst which was fluid filled.  They pierced it and drained it but a few days later it was back again.  They pierced and drained it again and the following day a blood vessel burst in that eye.  The blood cleared, the cyst refilled, not so big this time, but you can see it as a glitter in the corner of my eye which often feels like I have something in it.  Other times when it slips down, I cannot see or feel it.  Will this be a permanent feature from now on or do these cysts clear in time on their own?

These conjunctival cysts are very common and usually occur spontaneiously and not from infection or trauma. They often inter connect like tunnels and are then hard to drain. They are not serious. If it bothers you I would suggest trying to pierce it again. If they get huge and keep coming back then a form of minor office surgery can be done to cut a chunk out of the cyst wall with scissors.

Go to Google IMAGES and type in conjunctival cyst to see pictures of different size and shape.

The most I have  had to stick one to make it go away is 3.  Probably 75% with one stick 90% with two sticks and 100% with three sticks.
