Exclamation Urgent! Something going on - eye!

I get her from the field after 3hours, and she had this thing, lump, or whatever is it called, beside her eye. It's not soft. The eye is just ok, no tears and Candy sees ok, she's not in pain, eyelids are not swollen. Her eye isn't dry either.
I'm calling vet first thing in the morning if it won't disappear. Or should I call him immediatly? It's 22.10 here...
She had conjuctivitis problems with this eye. But it's definitly not the same stuff this time. I'm worried her tear canal is blocked.


(she opens her eye normally, it's just a weird pic, in the mid of blinking).

Is the lump in the tear duct? It looks like maybe it's clogged? I might even try a warm compress on it right now and I would maybe consider giving a little banamine....

Since it doesn't APPEAR to be a scratch to the eye itself, I would probably call the vet first thing in the morning if it's still like that.

It definately looks like her tear duct could be clogged. Maybe a mosquito just got her in a really bad spot? Hope she feels better soon.

Thanks :)
She is ok today
Like there was nothing yesterday. Maybe it really was a mosquito...

I did research about clogged tear duct (it was my first thought too, but her eye should water a lot if this was the case, and it didn't).

Yeah, I had a horse whos tear duct was blocked due to scar tissue on his face and it watered constantly. Hope whatever it was doesn't come back!
