in an earlier question this was the response:
if it is actually on the white part of your eyeAmblyopia
Eye its probably a phlyctenule.
the atricle above says phlyctenule is caused by staphStaph aureus food poisoning, but i ahve also seen them occur with excessive RUBBING.
anyway, they are not dangerous. usually self resolving with no medicationAllergic reactions to medication
if you have been rubbing it, stop. if it persistes past a few days or worsens, go to the eyeAmblyopia
even if it worsens and needs medical treatment its still not dangerous...only annoying.
But what if it is on the retina?
I work in a metal fabrication shop and think I may have had a piece of grinding wheel or metal on my eyelash and inadvertantly got it into my eye on the way home, maybe by rubbing or wiping my eye. Anyways, I flushed my eye when I got home and had both my wife and my sis-in-law (she the family RN) look in it and both reported not seeing any objects but could see the irritation. That was yesterday. All day today I could feel the "scratch or piece" in there and when I got home, we discovered what looks like a small bubble on the outer edge of my retina. Should I be concerned as it will be at least 2 days till I can see an eye doc, or will it go away?? What care besides Visene should I take?
