Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Moles (nevus) can not only appear on the skin, but can also appear on the eyes. This condition arises due to the deposition of melanin that grows in a certain area. This can happen not only to those who are adults, but also to children. In most cases, a mole on the eye is harmless and does not require special treatment.
You need to be vigilant if the moles on your child's eyes appear to be more and more, get bigger in size, block the field of view, or cause other eye complaints (for example, frequent watering, tearing, soreness, etc.).
Apart from moles, blackish patches in the eyes can also appear due to other causes, for example pinguecula (eye acne), complexion associated melanosis (CAM), primary acquired melanosis (PAM), melanoma (malignant cancer), and so on.
Therefore, you can first check your child's condition with an ophthalmologist to evaluate the possibility of a dangerous condition that requires special treatment.
At this time, here are the steps you can take:
Teach your children not to rub their eyes excessively. Protect children from exposure to dust, smoke, and other substances that can irritate the eyes. Give children healthy and nutritious food. Do not give any medicine to the child's eyes without a doctor's prescription.
