Are they along the lashline? Could be clogged oil glands. Warm compresses and lid massages can help get rid of them.

Hi,

No they are not on the lash line but several of them on the top lid and under the bottom lid on both eyes and are white and hard. I am wondering if they are connected to my eye problems as i have been having problems since October last year when i was hospitalized with severe eye pain swelling and eye muscle paralasys. It wont go away and is bilateral and is now in my other eye. Was originally diagnosed with Tolosa Hunt Syndrome but now i have been told Pseudotumor but these white lumps are multiplying lol.

Goodness! Ask your doctor! Multiplying lumps on your eyelids, especially in light of your previous eye problems, should be looked at right away.

How do you know they're not serious? You don't even know what they are.

Because ive had them forever, and they dont affect anything. They are just lil hard bumps on my upper eyelid, I have 2 of them, and they're small. You cant even see them with my eyes open. They are just annoying, but should goto the doctor anyway, see if I can get them taken off.

Hi there, I came across this post while searching for..you guessed it..."little white bumps on eyelids". I have a few too, and they don't do anything, they just aren't great looking. I found this on another site, sorry, I can't remember the address, but I hope it helps, I'm going to try it.

"I get little white bumps around my eyelids. Is there anything to get rid of them?

The little bumps are called milia and are usually caused by dry skin being trapped. One of the best products we have found for getting rid of milia is Yon-Ka Phyto-Contour Cream for eyes. It contains rosemary and seems to gently dissolve the little bumps. It is also good for dark circles and puffiness and can be used as a mask for the eye area. "

My daughter had a white bump form on her upper eye lid near the lash line. It seemed to be slowly getting larger. She had it for about 8 monthes when I sent her to a dermatalogist, who removed it in the office. It was such a relief to her for it to be gone. The dr. said they are harmless in general. My daughter had another come on the other eye lid about a year later and the dr. removed that also. It was easy and she said it was painless. The dr. made a tiny slit and extracted it
