Our time zones don't match up very well.....it is now 4 am here -- good morning!

Expert:  wieyedoc replied 13 days ago.

It doesn't really show up very well in your picture.....

The good news?

I do not see any evidence of a corneal ulcer or anything serious.

Do you think you might be able to get someone to help you try and get a picture that shows the lesion a bit clearer?

I think it could be pseudogerontoxon

The only way to know with certainty what is going on would be to have an ophthalmologist (eye MD) take a look at your eye using the slit lamp.

If all you had to do in order to diagnose ocular problems is look at pictures on the internet I could have saved a lot of time and skipped four years of undergraduate college, four years of medical school, four years of ophthalmology residency training and two years of a retina fellowship ;-)

In the end I bet you are going to be just fine.

Does this make sense?
