There are many many reasons to have scars on the eye. You need to ask these questions to the eye doctor that saw you. Hopefully you saw a MD physician ophthalmologist. If not have your parents take you to a real physician.

Generally there is nothing that can be done to remove scars on the back of the eye.

No, that is not true. Scars can heal overtime.
