Bump in Eye/Bad Eyelid After Cataract Surgery
I had cataract surgery 7 months ago. My eye waters and feels like there is something in it. Sometimes my eye blinks real fast to the point where I have to hold it shut. My eyelid gets caught on the bump when I blink. A black bump is right above the iris. My eye waters especially when I am lying down. Also, my eyelid does not fully open giving my eye the appearance of a deformity. My doctor told me to wait 6 months; the bump might go away. After the 6 months the bump in my eye bothers me more. My doctor said that he can remove the bump surgically, but seemed reluctant. I was prescribed Prednisolone 4 times a day for 2 weeks, then I was scheduled to see the doctor again the end of January to see if the size of the bump lessened. Does anyone have a similar situation? Should I have the bump removed surgically? I am so disappointed and worried.
