It can be a lot of things including nothing to worry about, the start of a migraine or more serious problems like floaters or a retinal detachment. If it worsens or persists you should see an eye doctor.
What it is is called milia. It is a keratin filled cyst. It is actually underneath the skin, so you can't pop it like a normal pimple. I've had two, both in the exact same spot. What is suggested is that you have it extracted (essentially popped) by a dermatologist. However, I did it at home using a sterile needle and clean hands. This could incur scarring or an infection, so I am not necessarily recommending home treatment. Also it hurts pretty bad and, honestly, it's hard to get the needle in the right spot since the skin on top is so tough. But it worked.
Prevention methods include mild exfoliation, less make-up (or better for you makeup and like products), and less sun exposure.
Causes include heredity, sloughed-off skin, sun exposure, and clogs due to oil, make-up, and the like.
In other words, it's harmless. You don't have cancer or any sort of disease. You basically have an annoying pimple.
On the information given, the most likely cause is a simple floater. This is a change in the vitreous humor of the eye which casts a shadow onto the retina. If this happens to be in the line of sight, it will move with the eye and always appear directly ahead. Floaters rarely indicate serious problems, and most people acquire a few over time, but a sudden fresh batch of floaters, especially if accompanied with any bright flashing lights in the vision, should be followed up medically for the UNLIKELY (2% max) chance of an early retinal detachment. Other causes of a spot in the direct line of vision are rarer but indicate a problem with the macula. This can be macular degeneration which is relatively common in the elderly, central serous maculopathy which is more common in younger people but is often self-resolving, localised macular haemorrhage and reaction to certain medications and drugs most commonly anti-malarials.
I have several floaters in my right eye. I have seen an eye doctor who says that most of the time they are caused by stress. I have seen a reduction and have had several more show up depending on how stressed I seem to be. they can check for the floaters in a normal eye exam if it bugs you too much.
I have had this in both eyes for at least a decade. It does get slightly better in less stressful times. Apparently, this can be caused by very scary problems as retina detachment as well as general health issues like yeast overgrowth in the body. Since I tend to eat more sweets during stressful times, I have the feeling the floaties are yeast related.
Black floaters are sometimes tiny vessel hemorrhage ( mine being due to diabetes They never really go away They will pop up at any time My worst time is morning The black spot settle in the while you are laying flat.I was told to sleep in recliner sitting as straight as possible This does not let the spot float to the bottom when you get up there will be little if none temporally
Everyone has a string-like jelly substance in their eyes. Those strings sometimes get clumped together making a "floater". Most floaters are normal, but if you notice a lot of new floaters or see flashes of light, you should contact your Optometrist immediately. Flashes of light could be the early signs of a retinal detachment and the only way to save most of your vision is to get it taken care of immediately. You will have to go see an Ophthalmologist for laser surgery if that happens. The only way to actually get rid of normal floaters is to have a surgery where they suck out all of the jelly-like substance from your eye. It sounds seriously disgusting, but completely true. I have worked with Optometrist for 2 years now and I hear some nasty stuff.
Floaters are generally cellular debris floating around in your eye near the retina where they cast a shadow and your eye projects these magnified shadows into space. We only notice these shadows if they float near the macula. If they float away from the macula we gradually loose site of them.
If by floaters you mean the things you see when your eyes are relaxed than no...you are fine. If by floaters you mean spots in your eye it would depend on if there is alot of them or just a few. I think you should go to an eye doctor...
You should take an appointment with an Eye Doctor. Get it checked.
Yes. The main cause is sternomastoid muscle.
they last forever
I had this question, too. I found a thread in a contact lens forum where it says you can donate them to an international non-profit called Madre that helps women. They want the lenses to have an expiration date that's at least six months after the date you send the lenses.
If you include your personal info, they'll send a certificate of receipt so you can write it off your taxes.

I can't imagine they'd be able to use mine- I had astigmatism/toric lenses and the prescriptions are so precise. Also, my eyes were different. The chances of someone having those exact same crappy corneas is probably close to zero but oh well. I had Lasik. What am I gonna do with em now?
This article actually outlines the steps to take to donat contact lenses to MADRE
Some of the answers below are too broad to trust if you really need to restrict sodium. Take "white breads" as an example. There are many types of white bread that have a good deal of salt in them. If you need to know, check the food information on the package of anything you plan to buy. It is also a good idea to stay away from processed foods. Many foods are low in sodium in their natural forms, however the surest thing to do is again to check the nutrition label of the food products you buy. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has a database of nutrients for thousands of food products sold in the country (added to the links below) BREADS AND CEREALS * Cakes * Cooked cereals * Cookies * Crepes * Doughnuts * Graham crackers, and low-salt crackers * Granola * Macaroni, noodles, and spaghetti * Melba toast * Puffed rice, wheat * Regular rice * Shredded Wheat * Sugar-sweetened cereals * White breads * Whole grain breads MAIN DISHES * All unprocessed meats, fish, and poultry * Eggs * Peanut butter * Tuna (low-sodium or rinsed) DAIRY PRODUCTS * Cream cheese * Cream (half-and-half, sour, and whipping) * Custard * Ice cream * Low-salt cheeses * Milk (all kinds) * Monterey jack cheese * Mozzarella cheese * Non-dairy creamers * Ricotta cheese * Sherbet * Yogurt CONDIMENTS * Butter and margarine * Horseradish * Mustard * Worcestershire sauce * Spices and herbs * Tabasco sauce FRUITS AND VEGETABLES * All fresh or frozen vegetables * All fruits, and juices * Canned tomatoes * Rinsed canned vegetables * Tomato paste BEVERAGES * Beer, and wine * Coffee, and tea * Fruit drinks * Soda pop, and seltzer SNACKS * Candy (any kind) * Unsalted nuts * Unsalted popcorn, chips * Low-salt products without potassium substitutes

Dr. Lylas Mogk (an ophthalmologist) replied to the same question on caring.com and answered:
"If the light blue iris ring you are seeing is at or near the margin between the iris (colored part of your eye) and the sclera (white part) and forms a large ring around that margin it is likely to be a deposit of cholesterol. It does not damaging to the eye and does not interfere with vision. This is very common in older individuals but if you are a young adult it may suggest high cholesterol. If the ring you are seeing is anywhere else on the iris other than following the outside margin, it should be checked."
These are really common in people with dark skin. They are basically freckles (nevi) on the conjunctiva. It's only a concern if they show up suddenly or grow over time. See an optometrist if you're concerned.
An optical illusion, like a magic picture. If you stare at them really hard they will disappear.
Removing stuck contact lens can be difficult. Removing stuck contact lens can also be uncomfortable.
If you have a problem removing stuck contact lens, do not panic. Removing stuck contact lens can be relatively easy if you remain calm and have a plan.
Begin removing stuck contact lens by washing your hands and make sure the drain in the sink is closed. Put your index finger on your lower eyelid and pull the eyelid down. Continue removing stuck contact lens by touching the lower edge of the contact lens with the tip of a finger. Try removing stuck contact lens by looking up and trying to slide the lens down toward the white of your eye.
Removing stuck contact lens at this point can be tricky if it is truly stuck. Try looking up and holding the lens under your index finger. Move your thumb and try to compress the lens carefully between your thumb and index finger. Removing stuck contact lens may become rather aggravating so use some patience and try a few re-wetting drops.
When you are removing stuck contact lens and you wear hard contacts you can try using a plunger. You will not have any luck removing stuck contact lens if they are the soft variety.
Back to removing stuck contact lens of the hard variety with a plunger. This works well and is very effective. You moisten the cup of the plunger and place it right on top of the lens. The lens should be easily removed because it will stick to the plunger. Removing stuck contact lens this way usually is the best plan.
When you have soft contacts, removing stuck contact lens is a little trickier. You have to use your fingers and just keep lubricating your eye.
Removing stuck contact lens is not much fun but it can be done. If you really have a serious problem removing stuck contact lens, contact your ophthalmologist.
Today I had two contact lenses in the same eye (don't ask) and could not get them out even with the help of some family members. They were stuck together and lubricating drops just got the pair to move together, but not out.
After watching the demo of professional contact lens removal tools over on good old YouTube, I got inspired and decided to use a pair of latex gloves. I kept them dry, touched the lenses, squeezed, and Bingo! out on the first try.
Not in themselves, but:If the floaters you see in your eye are the insignificant ones that have been there, to one degree or another for your whole life, they likely present no danger. Though annoying, the vast majority of floaters are harmless, and there are ways to prevent them through proper diet.
If, however, new floaters suddenly appear marked by bright light spots or streaks and dark moving specks, this could be a sign of retinal detachment, which can cause permanent blindness if not treated immediately. An immediate visit to an ophthalmologist is recommended. If this condition has been ruled out by your doctor try this natural cure i have heard great reviews from it eyefloaterscure.siterubix.com
In some cases yes, but that's up to your opthomologist (specialist for eyes.)
herein is the answer found on vodvos.com:
1. what is the bleeding reason?
hypertension caused, diabetic retinopathy caused, retinal detachment, ealse disease or trauma?
2. hypertension, diabetic caused, if the bleeding is small, no severe vetreous body opacity, laser treatment is allowed.
3. retinal detachment and ealse disease need urgent surgery.
4. trauma, severe vetreous body opacity need vetrectomy surgery.
You can donate contacts to charity shops like help the ages. Also your local opticians should or might have a box in which they recycle them.
Are you diabetic? You need to see an Ophthalmologist.
It depends on the exam, but my friends says it costs a lot, but many people manage to pay for it.
I think it costs anywhere from 51-100 bucks but if you go to Visionwork's website there is a coupon for a 29 dollar eye exam plus other coupons for eyeglasses. Hope this helps:)
Try pouring some straight muriatic acid over them.
