Brown spots on sclera
Hi, my husband has brown spots on the sclera of the eye.  I have read other comments regarding this being a normal thing.  I was just wondering if there are procedures that can eliminate this pigmentation in the sclera or treatments.  He has consulted with opthalmologists and they say that he has perfect eye sight and that there is nothing wrong with his eyes.  I would like it if he didn't have these spots, people confuse it with a liver disease.  I hope you can help. Thanks!!

These spots are common, more common in darly complected individuals and normal in blacks.  They are only removed if they exhibit growth or appearance that might suggest a malignant change (which is rare). Because removal would be cosmetic in other cases normally insurance will not cover removal.

It would likely not be helpful. See an eye MD. It may be worth the cost to you to remove it for cosmetic reasons if you're that stuck on it.

Most of these are like birthmarks or normal pigmentation. Ask your pediatrician to look at it to see if it warrants a referral to an ophthalmologist.

I am not a doctor but I use more organic herbs and vitamins before taking drugs which are not going to cure anything.I to have the brown spots and all a doctor will tell you is that it is pigment. Not true I recently discovered that its is from the cause of worms attatched to the back of the eye. For some reason more blacks have this condition. It may be to excessive eating of uncooked pork. I suggest that you find a homeopathic doctor for your overall living and care and trusting in god.

Hi, I recently developed a spot in the white part of my eye right next to the iris. It was slightly red when it first developed, and now it is a faint brown. Is there anyway to get rid of it?

Herbs are great for many people but before you freak out every body you make it sound like all spots are from worms. Not true. I suggest you do more studying before posting something like that. As for trusting in God which is always a capital G trust is goog God also gives knowledge. Tell that to the parents whos children have died from just prayer. God also provides common sense, which by reading your post you are lacking some.

Is it more likely to be cancerous if it continues to grow?
