My 3-year-old has two black spots on top of one of her eyes in the white part. Is this something I should worry about? I just noticed them today.
This would be very difficult to diagnosis or explain without an examination because I don't know exactly what the black spots are. These could well be completely benign; meaning they are harmless, but this will take an examination to answer that question. Consult your ophthalmologist for an eye exam. I suspect that these spots will not be dangerous, but these need to be examined to tell.
