At my annual eye exam, the optometrist found what she called

Resolved Question:

At my annual eye exam, the optometrist found what she called "pigment clusters on the optic nerve" during opthalmoscopy. She said she saw one spot on one eye and a couple spots on the other eye. She recommended I see an opthalmologist but said it was most likely nothing to worry about. Is this most likely the same thing as a freckle or mole on the eye?

No, it is not the samething as a freckle or mole on the eye though I am not sure what he meant by pigment clusters on the optic nerve. He probably was referrring to choroidal sclerosis or myopic crescent around the optic nerve. You do not need to worry about these 2 things though. However, you should see an ophthalmologist for a dilated eye examination to ensure that this is what he meant. Thanks and best wishes.
