Customer Question
computer for about 12 hours...
I wear contact lenses for 16 hours a day and use the computer for about 12 hours a day. I suffer from severe dry eye and lately I noticed a yellow ring around my iris and, also a light yellow spot (asymmetrical) on the white part of my right eye. Just concerned what this may be.

Save your picture on your computer, someplace easy to find it such as your desktop.

Go to www.tinypic.com

Upload your picture to the site tinypic.com by browsing for it as directed.

Once you do that it gives you a bunch of links you can use, one of which says "direct link for layouts" It is important to use this box. It is the forth one down from the top of the page.

Copy the link inside this box and then paste it into your justanswer dialog box and send it to your expert.

Very good pictures. That is called a conjunctival nevi. It is not related to your dry eye, it is not a cancer and it isn't a problem at this point.

Could this esclate to something else? What can I do to make it better?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Rick, Board Certified MD replied 6 years ago
It can, in rare cases, be considered a pare-cancerous lesion. What should you do? Have a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist at your convenience (there is no hurry) so she can document it with a picture and drawing. If it should change then you could decide, along with your doctor, if it should be excised.

Hi. There is nothing you can, or need to do, to change it. If you are concerned about how it looks for cosmetic reasons, it can be easily removed....although the surgery may leave a scar that is even less pleasing.

Here is a link to an article about nevi. The ones shown here are dark brown and yours is a light yellow.....the color can very.
