So If your dark skin (I'm Indian) it's normal to have pigmentation on the retina. I was under the impression sun was the major cause of it. My next question is this anything to concerned about it and can it lead to any kind eye mole, freckle,cyst, tumor. Also how I do protect myself from any more pigmentation...wear sunglasses?
1. dark skin, usually brown eyes and a lot of pigment in eye light complexion just the opposit. Your opinion is incorrect.
Your skin and your eyes need protection from sunlight. Excess sunlight damages skin, can cause skin cancer, skin melanoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Hat, suntan lotion high SPF and sunglasses that absort UV.
One other question. Is pigmentation on the retina the same thing as pigmentation on the choroid? My Eye MD said it was choroidial pigmentation and it was normal. I'm confused with all these different layers on the retina.
sir my eye was dialated two months ago..to check the causes of my eye floaters.. and after that i moved in sunlight with naked eye(no sunglasses even the hospital didn't even consider to give me or advice me to wear sunglasses after that event).after that day i started noticing that my eye became sensitive to light. i saw after images of light whenever my eyes are exposed to any kind of flash light.. i m anxious sir.. what the hell is happening with me.. i have 20/20 vision sir.. but this is going hard for me to move in night because i litterally became blind because of the after images of light of cars, bikes street lamps.. what should i do sir..
