Re: Bubble on my Eyeball
I hope you find this post! I have the same problem! The "bubble" is a swollen area of the whites of the eye, and the eye becomes red, right? In fact, I'm having this now, which is why I am scanning this Eye & Vision message board. I once went to the emergency room, because my entire eye had this swelling reaction, and the doctor said it's an allergic reaction and to take Benadryl. I've had this happen at my old house, my parent's house, my workplace, and my current apartment, so I know it must be due to some common allergen in the environment. Sometimes only part of my eye swells in this way (like yours); sometimes it's the entire eye. Once it was both eyes at once! It also seems to occur more and more often. I worry it will cause eye damage in the long-term. The only solution I can see would be to stop wearing contact lenses and always wear glasses, which would hopefully prevent the allergen from coming in contact with the eye (because if you go to rub your eye, you'll hit the glasses instead.) But I'm not willing to stop wearing contacts yet. I wish we were allowed to exchange email addresses, but since we're not, post here again if you have more thoughts. Good luck to you!
