What could be the cause of a black spot in my vision when I blink?

Floater: If it moves, then it's likely a vitreous opacity. Can be noted when the eye moves or seen against a light colored background. Floaters can be observed but should watch for warning signs of retinal detachment.

Get an eye exam: You might have a small abrasion (cut) in the cornea of your eye. A simple eye exam done at an urgent care or doctor can identify this. If this is the case you should get on some antibiotic eye drops to prevent eye infection.

Doc found a black spot behind my eye said it could be a freckle sending me for 2nd opinion. Seeing floaters n blurry vision eyepain is this normal?

Doc found a black spot behind my eye said it could be a freckle sending me for 2nd opinion. Seeing floaters n blurry vision eyepain is this normal?

No: The eye pain and floaters are probably not related to the 'freckle' and are not normal. A choridal nevus is a freckle in the choroid the layer under the retina covering the inside of the eye. Most are benign but need to be monitored. A retinal exam and a bscan ultrasound can give clues if it is a melanoma (malignant tumor). A second opinion is a good idea in this case.

Eye visit: Any fixed black spot in your central vision that does not resolve indicates an eye problem requiring prompt examination. With eye pain, could have some kind of optic neuritis, otherwise could have some retinal disorder.

Black spot visible in lower right corner of vision. Right eye. Same spot. Visible 50% time. Specialist says nothing on retina. Thoughts?

Eye Floater: You are describing an eye floater which is caused by an irregularity in the vitreous gel of the eye. The fact that your retinal exam is normal is good news as the irregularity is in the vitreous rather than the retina. Floaters are not dangerous and are just irritating. They normally do not require treatment but if it bothers you a Vitrectomy may be an option

Visual disturbance: Could be from congestion because when you sleep the fluids from congestion flow into the eye area. Would elevate head of bed with pillow between mattress and boxspring. That being said follow up today with optometrist (lenscrafters, hour eyes) as they can get a good look at the eye and are accesible and can tell you if something in the eye needs immediate attention. F/u w/ doc may need antibiotics

What could be the cause for black spot on the lower lip?

Many conditions: There are many possibilities. It could be a venous lake. It could be colored from nearby fillings. It could be a pigmented lesion such as a mole. Always have to consider melanoma. If it's been there a long time without changing, it's very likely a benign process. If it is new, growing, bleeding, or painful, it needs to be evaluated quickly. Hope that helps.

When I blink I see a black spot?

Doctor can evaluate: If a new vision symptom pops up, one should see his primary care doctor and/or an ophthalmologist (eye doctor). Vision is so important, so it is good to have a doctor get the whole story and examine the eyes. It may or may not be something to worry about, but one cannot tell without an evaluation.

What are the small dot like black spot I sometimes see only when I blink?

Eye Floaters: The black spots are actually more commonly referred to as floaters and have the tendency to float around in and out of the field of vision. Sufferers can get this in one eye or both and it is especially noticeable in areas of bright sunshine or lightly colored frames. No treatment is necessary for this condition which is considered a normal variant.
