Hi - I think what you might be describing is something called a "pingueculum" or "pinguecula". I bet if you do a search on the internet, you'd be able to find a lot of information. Good luck!
P.S. I don't know if I'd stick anything sharp in my eye just to see what happens!
Maybe you could make an appointment to see your doctor.
