In the last five days I observed three tiny black spots in the white part of my four year old daughters eyes. They are not moving. My daughter is wearing glasses for farsighted. In her right eyes I could see the leaked blood vessels. What are these, and why does these spots appear all of sudden?
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.
These are probably just pigment spots and are common in dark skinned people. I doubt if the blood vessels are leaking, but might look a little prominent. It is difficult to say otherwise without seeing them. If you have any more concerns you should ask the optician to examine her eyes (or the GP to have a look). This would be a good check at this age to make sure everything is normal.
