Growth in my eye

2413672?1201352372
Hi can anybody tell me what i have on my eye ?
Is it a growth ? How can it be removed? By laser and what are the side effects.
I am worried and pretty frustrated about this growth on my eye.
I had it since young and people always made fun of it.

Hard to tell from the picture you formed but it looks like a limbal dermoid tumor (non-malignant).

See an Eye MD Corneal Specialist. They can usually be taken off with surgery. Find one at www.aao.org

My friend had one of those, a slight bolge. It is easily removed, I believe that it is covered by insurance as an obstruction. Don't worry. go see a good M.D. , and it will be done in one visit. She was able to drive after, it just stung  alittle for a day.
I have had a long corneal scratch, I wore a patch for a few days. My eye is fine now
