Blackish faint spots on the whites of the baby's eyes (sclera) are most often caused by moles (eye nevus, eye freckles). This condition occurs due to deposition of skin pigment-producing cells, namely melanocytes, which are generally benign. As long as the size is not enlarged, does not cover the field of view, and also does not cause sufferers to experience complaints (for example, itching, burning, lumps, etc.), this condition is often indeed harmless and does not require special treatment.
If you have seen your child seen by a doctor, the steps you are taking are correct. The doctor's conclusion that your child's condition is not dangerous should not make you worry. However, to be sure, it never hurts you to ask for a second opinion by checking your child back to the doctor, pediatrician, or other ophthalmologist. In rare conditions, black spots on the sclera can also arise due to other causes, such as congenital ocular melanocytosis, melanoma, pinguecula, macular cafe au lait, and so on. By knowing what is the exact cause of the spots, of course the doctor can identify the potential dangers, as well as determine the best management that needs to be done.
At this time, you should not manipulate these spotting carelessly in any way. Always take care of your child's eye health, namely by protecting him from direct exposure to pollution and excessive sunlight, give him healthy and nutritious food, and not carelessly use drugs for the eyes.
Hope this helps ...
