Hello Mrs. Maisara,
Our eye is made up of several parts: eyelids, eyelashes, cornea, conjunctiva, sclera, iris, pupil, lens, retina. Gray-white spots like dots on his black eyes can be found on the cornea, lens or retina.
In the cornea it can be caused by infection so that the cornea becomes injured, lack of vitamin A, after suffering from measles, viruses, or an injury because an object has entered the eye. In the lens can be a cataract. In children usually congenital cataracts that can be seen from birth. In the retina can be a malignancy or retinoblastoma eyeball cancer. The treatment given will be in accordance with the results of the doctor's examination. Dangerous or not depending on the cause, therefore it is advisable to check with an ophthalmologist. Immediately consult your child's eye complaints because if left untreated it can cause serious complications.
Hopefully my explanation can answer your question. Thanks.
