I have the same thing but I have two under one eyelid and three under the other. They won't go away and I've talked to a doc about it. They don't know what it is either.

I have the exact thing growing under my eyelid. One on each side. Just like yours. No red inflammation look. Not itchy. Don't hurt either. I just can kind of feel it. Wanting to know what it is as well.

I have this as well. Looks exactly like yours. Had since 2005. Sometimes they get irritated and inflamed, make my eyes itch and feel like there is a foreign body in there. Went to an eye dr in 2005, told me could be caused by dust particles. Gave me some eye drops and sent me on my way. No answer other than that. They haven't gotten worse. They don't bother me continuously but do see where they could be right about the allergen cause. I have 20/20 vision and have never wore glasses/contacts a day in my life.

Expertise

I can answer almost any question about vision and general eye health care. As a non-surgeon, I may not be able to answer very involved technical questions about surgical procedures or highly specialized medical treatments. As of March 10, 2010, I will no longer answer any questions about Clear Care. People who do not understand how to use it should contact their eye doctor directly for advice.

Experience

I hold the degree of Doctor of Optometry and was in full-time private practice for twenty-five years. Currently I have reduced my schedule to part-time to allow time to write a book on another topic.
