Swelling and redness of white part of eye (conjunctiva)

Hello,

The corner of my eye, (the conjunctiva) is swollen and there appears to be a "bubble" right next to my eye ball.  And most of the white membrane is red.  I have discomfort, and slight pain if I touch my eyelid.  What should I do?  Or take to ease the redness and swelling?  

As a side note, I had lasik surgery about 7 years ago.  I don't know if that is a factor or not.
Thank you for your help!

I would suggest you use some tears and if symptoms persists, see an eye doctor.

This could be a inflamed pinguecula.
