I had my eye checkup yesterday, my left eye has been bothering me a bit, very dry, something sticky moving around, redness. The optomotrist told me I have an eye cyst and to use warm compresses 3-4 times per day. My only concern is that both my mom and grandmother had eye pressure problems, could this lead to this? Should I see an opthamologist to look into this problem further re: the eye cyst?
My opthamologist discovered yesterday that I have a cyst and freckle on the sclera both of which are common but she was concerned becaused I have both in the same eye. Can it be cause for concern? She wants to see me again in 3 months.
