Eye sun spot

Hi

I visited a doctor in Australia about a white spot on my eye just recently.

The doctor informed me it was a sun spot and not to be too concerned unless it started to agitate me.

I am aware sun spots can become malignant and so I am concerned about this and would like to have it removed if possible.
There are also some red vein streaks running away from the spot.

At present there is no discomfort, however wish to have it removed if this procedure is available. Also will the scarring or? cause problems

Any advice would be most welcome

Thanking you

It is not practicle or economical to remove sun damaged tissue from the eye just like its not done on the skin. the changes of a malignant transformation is very very low much lower than on the skin. Be satisfied with keep observation on it.
