clear bubble in eye

Last Tuesday my eye started bothering me.  I thought I had an eyelash or something in it which caused me to want to rub it a lot. It foes itch at times and iIt also seems to be watering a tad more than my right eye- nothing extreme though.  I ruled out pink eye b/c it wasn't red at all & wasn't stuck together in teh morning.    I let it go, thinking it would be better in the morning.  On friday, it still bothered me so I went to my doctor who did a cornea scratch search & found nothing.  He put in a prescription for an antibiotic eye drop which would clear up pink eye, if indeed I had it.  Well, it's now Sunday & I decided to get a mirror out .  When I hold my eyelids open & move my eyeball so I am looking far right, I can see what looks like a clear water bubble with some strands of clear things floating near the far left corner of my eye.  it's in the white fluid part of my eye.  I have never had allergies & do not wear contacts or glasses.   What is this?

Most likely a conjunctival cyst. They are common, benign, often go away on there own and look like a water blister on the eye.
