Discovered blister/stye growth inside my eye today.

Dear Doctors,

My right eye has some discomfort when I blink. It feels as though I have an eyelash in it but I don't. I get relief when I use non-prescribed eye drops or don't blink. I checked my eye in the mirror and found a small, clear "blister" type thing in the middle corner part of skin next to my eyeball. It doesn't itch, my eye isn't red and I just noticed it today.  

I'm hoping it is something that can cure on its own since I have no insurance.

Thank you in advance!

Just because you don't have insurance doesn't mean you can't pay for medical care especially office visits which are usually less expensive than say a new pair of Nike running shoes. Those clear blisters are smooth and generally inclusion cysts. You likely need to look for a cause other than the clear blister. See an Eye MD. Find one at www.aao.org

Dr. Hagan III,

Thank you for your prompt response.

I understand but not only am I uninsured, I'm unemployed. I graduated last year with a BA, moved last September and I've been searching for a career for 7 months now. I actually wear glasses and am overdue for my prescription (last exam was Dec. 2006). Being broke ***** but I will look at that website you referred me to.

So might it clear on its own? I want to pop it with a needle though I know I shouldn't.

Thanks!

Stay away from your eye with a needle in your hand and an intent to surgerize yourself.

I won't touch it. I will post the diagnosis of what an opthalmologist says as soon as I see one. Hopefully within two weeks.

Thanks again!
