Eye and Vision Care
I have had dark brown eyes, and now they are turning white on the top and bluish and lighter around the edges. they have also been watering alot. My optometrist said there is nothing to worry about however, what is happening is scaring me. I can`t afford to go to an opthamologist right now. Please help.
You need a definitive diagnosis before you can evaluate any possible treatment options. So ask your optometrist for a definitive diagnosis. Then submit another Netwellness question to one of our Eye and Vision Experts.
If your optometrist cannot provide a definitive diagnosis of your condition, then you need a second opinion from a different eye doctor.
