I've had this odd black spot in my right eye for about a week. It's slightly changed shape, but it won't go away! I can see it mostly when looking at the sun or a TV/PC screen, but it's always there! I'm starting to worry wether it's a health problem or not. Some advice about it, please?
I am not a doctor either. But when I saw new black spots, I was told to come into the office immediately, to make sure it was just a floater, and not something like a retinal tear, which could lead to a detached retina, which is very, very, serious! Call your doctor. Or the doctor that you do call, tell the office your symptoms over the phone; so that they can fit you in immediately.
