Eye and Vision Care
Brown Spot in My Eye..
I have felt like there was something under my right eye lid for quite a while..like an eyelash or something. Sometimes it`s worse than others. Last night after putting a ton of drops in it I was able to wash what appeared to be dark spot around to the side where I could see it. I tried to remove it with a wet QTip but it wouldn`t come out, it was almost like a flap or something. The spot is still on the side of my eye, it hasn`t moved back under my eyelid. I can feel it when I blink and my eye will water off and on. What do you think?
I think you should see your eye doctor as soon as possible.
This may be an embedded foreign object, old blood, a harmless freckle, or maybe an infected/obstructed gland in your eyelid.
