Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
A mole in your eye, usually underneath the retina, is a fairly common occurrence. The vast majority ot these never change into anything suspicious or concerning, but there is that small chance. If you are followed regularly by an ophthalmologist (once a year), that doctor can follow the appearance of it and if it starts to change in appearance then further tests can be done to determine whether it has turned malignant or not. Often times these melanomas grow without any effect on the eyesight which makes their progression silent--all the more reason to be regular in your follow-up exams. I wouldn't be overly concerned, but rather just be diligent about regular exams for this. Does that help answer your question?
