Eye and Vision Care
Spot in Eye
my 14 year old has a black star shaped spot in his left eye on the colored middle what could this be
This is difficult to answer based on the way the question was written. I am not clear whether this black shaped star is on the colored part of the eye (the iris) or whether it is in the pupil (black part) of the eye.
Regardless of the location, if it is something new I would recommend an eye exam in order to properly diagnose the spot.
