Hi doctor,

My mother is 63 years old. Her weight is 60 kg and her height is 5'2''. For the last two-three days, she was getting an eye burn. Yesterday, she felt like a sand particle inside her left eye. Also, dropping of the eyelid. So today we started putting some over the counter eye drop. While putting drop we noticed a black mark inside the white of her eye. Is it a matter of concern?

Hi

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the picture. (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

This appears to be a mole. By seeing her eyelids it appears a bit swollen so can be a mild infection.

Start Moxifloxacin eye drop six times a day for seven days, Refresh tears eye drop six times a day for seven days, FML-T (Tobramycin, Fluromethalone acetate) eye drop three times a day for seven days. Take tablet Cefixime 200 mg twice daily for three days (kindly rule out any allergies beforehand), Occupol eye ointment (Chloramphenicol and Polymyxin-C sulfate) at bedtime.

Thank you doctor,

The black mark is just a mole and nothing to worry about, right?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

No, it does not appear dangerous. Signs to seek medical checkup is change in size, shape, and color of the mole. It seems a benign (non-dangerous) lesion. If any of the above-mentioned signs appear, please consult a doctor in person.
