Concretions are tiny little “micro pea” sized deposits in the conjunctiva of the eyes. More precisely (from the EyeWiki), they are “degenerating epithelial cells and proteinaceous secretions [and lipids (oils)] from conjunctival glands. This cellular debris becomes trapped and can undergo calcification.” It is an often underappreciated source of discomfort and irritation. Even an isolated concretion can be a source of foreign body sensation. Unlike in the literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, many people (not just a Princess) have sensitivity to concretions which are often missed unless the eyelid is flipped. As demonstrated in the video snippet below, Dr. Fishman shows removal of several concretions with a 30g needle.
