What can eye nodules be caused by?
"Eye Nodule" is a very vague term and can mean several different conditions. Most commonly, a nodule is a localized elevated area of inflammation. It usually responds to topical steroid–containing eye drops. Since there are so many different causes of nodules I advise you to see your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) for additional advice.
