You need to see an opthalmologist.  No substitutes.

Are you using Latisse or any other 'lash enhancement' medications?  If so, they can cause hairs to grow anywhere you apply the liquid.

I have had that too and noticed it the past couple of years...I'm 56 and not using Latisse or anything else.   It does irritate my eye sometimes, and I have pulled them in the past.
Don't know if it's normal, but I never was concerned either.
Good luck and let us know what you find out.

That think you can't name is the 'caruncle'.  Hairs do sometimes grow in it. See an ophthalmologist.
