Am I the only one

I have an eye condition nevus of ota ! Is very rare more common in women ! I'm male n I have it in both eyes !! It didn't bother me so much before but now I gettin older n it's gettin darker ! What treatment is avaible n is there any other males out there with this condition n has it in both eyes ??

There is no treatment for the Nevus of Ota. You need to have yearly dilated eye exams because there is a small chance of developing a tumor in your eye which can be cancerous.
Best wishes,
