There's a gray spot on my eye ball. Is this normal?

I have a red blood spot on my eye? Should I see a doctor?

Bleed: This is a sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. As long as the vision is unchanged and there is no pain, everything should be fine. If it is a little irritated, then you can use an artificial tear up to 4 times a day to lubricate. This is due to a blood vessel leaking blood and is usually without cause. Sometimes straining or blood thinner can cause this. If it continues to happen, follow up with eye md. ...Read more

Hello, I have a white spot near my iris edge, where is the color of the eye and my eye is red but not inflamed.

I have a white spot on my forehead above my left eye. What could that be? How can I get rid of it?

I have a white spot on my forehead above my left eye. What could that be? How can I get rid of it?

Dermatologic: If the white spot is on your forehead, it would fall more in the realm of a dermatologic (skin) specialist to best reply. It is just anatomically above your eye and thus you refer to it as an eye problem. I suggest that you seek counsel from a dermatologist who would be better equipped to respond. There are eye problems that can have skin manifestations. However, yours does not appear to be. ...Read more

Please see an eye: Doctor or go to the emergency room to have this looked at.

The only way to tell is to be examined. ...Read more
