    Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
    There are a few possibilities here. Sometimes the white skin of the eyeball (conjunctiva) can become a little loose and wrinkled and will hang over the lower eyelid. This is called conjunctivochalasis. An other possibility is some of the normal fat pad from behind the eye ("cushion") coming forward and getting positioning under the white skin of the eye.

    It does not sound dangerous. A good external disease specialist can make the exact diagnosis and likely can fix the issue surgically if it is annoying. Find the specialist at www.AAO.org under "Find an Eye M.D." searching by your location and "external disease".
