Ask An Eye Doc: Why does my eye squeak when I rub it?

“What’s that little pink think in the corner of my eyes? My left one squeaks when I rub it or even touch it!” Use hashtag #AskAnEyeDoc to ask YOUR questions.

At VSP, we get a lot of interesting questions from our members, so we created a video series to address many of those things you’ve always wondered about your eyes. In this video, Dr. Masoud Nafey, OD, answers a question from Dan about a squeaky eye.

Dr. Nafey says that little pink thing is actually an extra piece of skin in the eye called a caruncula. His advice? Don’t rub it! You can actually end up scratching the eye, and that hurts a lot!
