Customer Question
I just noticed a...

I just noticed a tiny white spot on the colored part of my left eye. I tried to wash it off with eye drops, but it is not budging. What is it?

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

My vision has always been good. My last check up was in December.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not related to this. It feels like a scratched cornea. Initially that is what I thought it might be, but after taking a close look through using a magnifying mirror, I can see the tiny white dot right in the middle.
