bump on eye
I have a bump on the white of my eye. It does not hurt but does turn red. i am a contact lens user and have been for alot of years and have never experienced this problem. My vision does not blur nor does this really bother me in any way.Do you have any idea as to what it is?

It is probably a pinguecula due to irritation from the edge of the contact lens. They also occur from sun damage. Use GOOGLE IMAGES and type in pinguecula and see what they look like. With time and continued contact lens wear they tend to get larger.
