    Rather, this is an answer to “what might cause a clear bubble on the surface of a person’s eye?”.

    1. Conjunctival cyst: Conjunctival cysts are thin walled, clear fluid filled “bubbles” within the conjunctiva of the eye. They often change size, and can slowly increase in size. They usually cause no symptoms, but larger cysts can cause discomfort due to the fact that as they become more elevated, they dry out faster. When we blink, the lids catch on the cysts, creating an unpleasant sensation. They can be primary or secondary inclusion cysts. Primary cysts are congenital, which remains hidden in the fornix and gradually increase with age. A secondary cyst can be a parasitic cyst, an implantation cyst due to trauma, or a degenerative cyst.

    Conjunctival cysts can frequently be seen on the surface of conjunctival nevi (moles) as seen below. Cysts on a conjunctival nevus are usually a good sign, as such nevi are more likely to be benign.

    2. Prolapsed Orbital Fat: Fat from around the back of the eye comes forward under the conjunctiva and forms a tumor-like lump. These are usually not “clear” however.

    3. Corneal Desmetocele: The cornea gets so thin – usually as the result of an infection/ulcer, or trauma, that the thin interior portion (Descemet’s membrsane) starts to bulge out.

    4. Chemosis: Larger areas and not so clear. Usually associated with an allergic response.

    That’s all I can think of. At the moment.

    There are two conditions that can cause the appearance of a clear bubble on the eye.

    The most common one is called chemosis. It is caused by accumulation of fluid between the relatively clear skin that covers the eye, called the conjunctiva, and the white, leathery shell of the eye, the sclera. Chemosis is most often the result of an allergic reaction, and may be associated with redness of the conjunctiva or itching. In its most severe form, chemosis may be so bad that the conjunctive protrudes between the eyelids like a big white marshmallow. Treating the allergy makes the chemosis disappear rapidly.

    Chemosis may also result from infections and inflammatory processes. In these cases, it indicates a more severe stage of these diseases.

    A less common cause is lymphangiectiasis. In this condition, which is often too small to be seen unless you are looking at the eye with a microscope, patients develop the appearance of crystal clear fluid filled tubes in the conjunctiva. They are caused by blockage of lymphatic vessels in the conjunctiva. The lymphatic vessels fill with clear, watery lymphatic fluid, and can look like squiggles of clear jelly on the eye surface. Lymphangiectiasis is usually harmless, and no treatment is required for it.

    The conjunctiva is the clear membrane that lines the inside of your eyelids and covers the white of your eye. … A pingueculum is a small bump on the white of your eye, usually on the side closest to your nose. The bump may be clear or yellowish. A pterygium is a small bump that has tiny blood vessels in it.

    Chemosis is a sign of eye irritation. The outer surface of the eye (conjunctiva) may look like a big blister. It can also look like it has fluid in it. When severe, the tissue swells so much that you can’t close your eyes properly.

    The bubble that you are describing is a vesicle, which forms in the clear skin which covers the white part of the eye called the conjunctiva. Usually caused by chronic irritation such as dry eye or allergies. You might try preservative-free artificial tears, one drop four times a day for the next 30 days. If it is allergic related, you may want to try an over-the-counter anti-allergy drop such as Zaditor One drop every 12 hours.

    In either case, it’s probably not a serious threat to your eye. If you don’t see any results in 30 days, see your eye doctor for further attention.

    “What is and how can I get rid of the tiny hard bubble in my eye rim that I sometimes squeeze and a tiny white substance comes out?”

    You didn’t mention pain or swelling, just “…the tiny hard bubble…squeeze and a tiny white substance comes out.”

    That would rule out a stye, as they almost always provoke some discomfort, redness, and swelling along the lid margin. So, it sounds like you have a blocked meibomian gland. They are small glands along the margin of the eye lids, they secrete an oily sebum. The material that comes from these glands is meant to form a light oily film over your tears to prevent the tears from evaporating too rapidly. It is not pus. You can usually open blocked glands by applying a warm compress to your lids (to liquify the sebum), and gently scrub the lids with a warm and clean wash cloth.

    There are also commercially available lid scrubs that you can find in pharmacies. Please don’t “squeeze” your lids, as unless your fingers are very clean, you can cause an infection. Take a look at the photo below. Does it resemble the “bubble” you described?

    If the bubble is clear like this:

    This is called chemosis and is typically caused by irritation of the eye. Please make sure you have been seen by your doctor, and if necessary, an ophthalmologist about this issue. It is important to figure out what the cause is, to properly address it and treat it.

    Typically, once the offending element is sussed out and treated, the chemosis will gradually get better on its own. It’s counter-productive to massage, rub, or otherwise irritate your eye because it will make the chemosis worse.

    Best see an ophtalmologist, hard to tell what it is. If it is attached to the eye, it could be a bulla, but if you have those you should have other problems, like very blurry eyesight. Bullae form when water accumulates in the cornea(making it cloudy), and should be monitored closely because they could snap. It is likely something else if you have no other problems with your eye.

    • I suspect you are probably referring to a bubble like swelling over the white of the eye. This probably is a conjuntival cyst.
    • Conjuntiva is the transparent layer covering the white of the eye or sclera. This is benign and can easily be treated by incision or snipping by an ophthalmologist.
    • I am making certain assumptions and it could be something quite different as the question is really vague.

    See a specialist to make sure.
