This is Dr. KV. I'm here to help with Nigel. Does Nigel have any discharge from his eyes? Is he rubbing at his eyes?

White spots are generally a corneal scar. These types of spots do not change over time and are usually small.

White spots on the surface of the cornea can also occasionally form as the result of lipid or mineral deposits. Both of these conditions usually are not painful.

Thank you

If the spot changes, I recommend taking Nigel to your vet for an exam. Please feel free to reach out if you need any further info.

With appreciation,

Dr. KV
