raised lesions on the sclera

My husband woke this am with raised lesions (areas) from the outside of the iris towards the lacrimal caruncle on his left eye then later this evening it was also on the right eye. On the right eye its on both sides of the iris. He's having a slight vision problem. The swollen area is off white in color. It appears to be only slightly pink around the edges of the swollen part of the eye. Is this an infection of some kind or mabey alergies (allergies) to something? Does he need to see a Dr. about this or will it go away on its own.

If its an infection expect pus and purulent discharge. It could be episcleritis or an inflammed pingueculum.  If not better tomorrow see an ophthalmologist.

No way to make  a diagnosis but since you have headache and blurred vision you should see your ophthalmologist or call your family MD and ask for a referral.  If the blurred vision and headache become servere and you can't get into an MD consider going to an ER with ophthalmology coverage.
