Did it start out as a red bump, or had you noticed it before - was it a clear to light yellowish color? Its most likely pingueculitis caused by any one of a number of things... contact lenses brushing against them, Allergies, rubbing the eyes... If it's not terribly bothersome, you can probably use an over the counter eye drop, but - if you're having any discharge, watering or light sensitivity it could more of an infection, at which point, I'd advise seeing your primary care physician or your Optometrist/Opthamalogist so they can prescribe you an antibiotic or steroid drop to clear that up. Hope that helped... Cindy

What causes a little red bump in the eye that causes the person to see black and white?

I doubt the little red bump is a direct cause of this symptom. The Retina of the eye is basically a large membrane of nerves which are light sensitive. Some of these are rod shaped cells and some are cone shaped. The cones are more in the center and are responsible for color vision. We have far fewer cones than rods. The rods see in black and white. It would seem that something has damaged or destroyed the cones of the Retina. As for the red bump I am uncertain. See an optometrist immediately before you loose more of your vision. You could have Glacoma--this will damage the retina--it is a build up of pressure inside the eye-ball.

What causes a sty in the eye?

Styes are caused by bacteria. The bacteria irritate an eyelid oil gland making it inflamed, red and tender. This bacterium is often found in the nose, and it's easily transferred to the eye by rubbing first your nose, then your eye. It can also be from makeup; using other people's eyeliner and mascara or not taking your makeup off at night.
