For many many years my husband has had the strangest problem with his eyes. To let you know my husband wears glasses and not contacts. Small clear to white particles will stick to the cornea around the colored part of the eye. They never appear on the whites of the eye or the black spot in the middle. Sometimes there maybe one big one sometimes a bunch of small ones. They have appeared in both eyes but mostly affect his left one. They always appear in the same spot, the bottom area of the colored part of the eye. The are very sticky. They do not come off by rubbing and they do not come off with a rinse or eye lubricants. (Eye lubricants do not prevent them from coming either.) We have to scrape them off with the ball of a fingertip. They are very irritating and distracting to my husband. They do not cause any kind of inflammation or redness. When they are removed they are soft to the touch. As soon as we scrape them off he is fine until they reappear again. My husband works in construction and at first we thought it was dirt particles. But they can reappear on the weekends or on vacation, or when he has been in the house all day. He has been to both an optometrist and a opthamalogist (spelling?) neither has ever heard of this or seen it. If anyone has any ideas it would be appreciated. Thank you.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
