Does anyone get small clear bumps on their top eyelid?
I get very small clear bumps on my top eyelid next to my eyelashes. They are very itchy. My doctor believes they are allergy related, but I can't find anything about what they are or what they are called. It's not a stye. They are very small and I can have several of them at a time.

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis is a non-contagious, seasonal allergic disorder usually appearing during the spring or warm weather. Major symptoms include hard, cobblestone-like bumps (papillae) on the upper eyelid, stringy or mucous discharge, inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the inside of the eyelid (conjunctiva) and the tough, white, outer coat of the eyeball (sclera), sensitivity to light and intense itching.

Happy trails!!

This is not contagious, dspite the warings.

it could be mebomianitis..that is inflammation of the mebomian glands which secrete oil /sebumThe meibomian glands are located within the structure of the lids and have tiny openings to release their secretions on the edges of the lids.
Any condition that increases the thickness of the oily secretions of the meibomian glands will allow excess oils to accumulate on the edges of the lids.
Careful cleansing of the edges of the lids will usually minimize symptoms. Your health care provider may prescribe an antibiotic ointment to be applied to the lid edge.
Meibomianitis is not a vision-threatening condition. Most patients do well with treatment

They could possibly be plugged oil glands. Try washing your eyes and eyelashes with baby shampoo twice per day and see if that doesn't clear it up.

If he doesn't have a cure, I'd find a new doctor!
