Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
There is really nothing you can safely do to get rid of the color. It will, however wear off in a few days.
I see you have asked this question twice now. There is no need to pay for both of them. Just hit the accept button on the previous question and, if you desire, let this one expire and/or ask for a refund.
Of, course, if you want to pay me twice for the same topic I wouldn't want to deprive you of that joy ;o) In all truth though, once is enough......
Let me know if I can do anything else to help.
Thanks for giving me the oportunity to chat with you this has been happening to me for the past 4years now not just started and since then it has not change i tried several eyes drops and nothing has change?
Did you say in the other question that you sprayed makeup foundation in your eyes or am I confusing you with someone else?
Nope i said i also used optrex actimist eye spray it a new product from optex
Oops.....my mistake, sorry.
Yes i guess so cause this is the first time we are having a conversation
Brown patches on your eye are most likely ocular melanosis. What is your natural skin tone?
I dark in complexion
as is black, or just kinda olive skinned/white
Not sure how to ask this in a PC way ;o)
Ok. Well, brown areas on the conjuctiva, while the occur in all skin tones are more common in darkly toned folks like yourself. The biggest issue in their diagnosis is if they are pre-cancerous/melanoma's. In someone your age I would tend to lean to the NOT cancerous side.....
No drop or medicine is going to change them or make them go away.
Do you have a camera that you can upload the picture onto your computer? If so, I'd be happy to take a look at this area for you
oh it not possible at the moment because my camera is not with me now
ok. Well, then, I would suggest your have a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist to better delineate what these areas are. If you are really concerned, they can be removed the minor surgery, although this may leave a scar that is just as cosmetically unacceptable.
does this make sense to you?
sure but is there no medicine or drop that i can use to get rid of it?
No. This is because the color is actually in the "meat" of the skin around your eye. No drop or surface treatment can affect it.
but from my teen till my 20's my eyes are always white
The only way to remove it is to cut the conjunctiva off your eyeball and, if it is a small spot, let it heal. If it is a slightly larger spot, suture it closed, and if it is a very large spot(s) replace the excised conjunctiva with a graft, either from under your upper eyelid or from a donor.
The fact that things have changed is why I feel it's important for you to have a complete eye examination by an well trained ophthalmologist so as to figure out exactly what is going on.
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
