    Small Growth on Eye

    My fiance has a small growth on his eye. It is not painful, nor is it overly red. He has 20-15 vision and therefore has not been to an eye doctor since 1991. He is away on business and cannot get an appointment with his GP to be referred to someone until he returns. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Lots of "growths" on the eye that are harmless and a few kinds that need attention to prevent problems. Not enough information here to make a smart guess. A visit to the ophthalmologist when he returns home would be a smart first step.
