bumps on eye lids

Hi All,
I have little bumps in the corners of both eyes. I went to the dermatologist and asked him to remove them. He said it looks like high cholesterol and if my cholesterol goes down the bumps will probably get better. My cholesterol was never checked. Well they have gotten worse. The skin in the corner of my eyes even sags a little. Im only 45 years old. I should add that I don't have any health insurance. Any advice/suggestions? TIA

RE: bumps on eye lids


I have tiny little bumps on the bottom of one of my eyelids. They are not painful or itchy. I'm 22 years old, eat well and exercise regularly. I do have allergies... Could this be what's causing them?
Actual raised bumps on the eyelids are not associated with usual allergic eyes (allergic conjunctivitis). They could be related to chronic eye rubbing, from any cause. Eczema, or dermatitis of the lids, could also be responsible. Rarely, large bumpy deposits can form around the lids due to high cholesterol levels. If the problem is bothersome, I would recommend consulting a dermatologist (skin specialist) or your eye doctor.

Eyes sagging...hey, you're over 21! Most folks have one eye that sags more than the other. Welcome to "maturity"....

Are you on meds for hi-cholesterol? Get your cholesterol checked.

Hello Everyone,
Well no doubt eye is the most important portion of our body.
It needs to me too much care.
I am talking about the keratoplasty, glaucoma surgery ,post-trauma surgery which is used for surgery in our eye .
Lots of medications are available for this purpose .Well I heard that Healon dosages are very well working for this situation .Please suggests.

Here is a link that might be useful: Healon dosages

At 45, you could be in the perimenopause stage of life. I have several growths on my lids that came on during my hormonal changes. Skin elasticity changes too, besides the fact that everything goes downward over the years..gravity.
