A New Part of Me



This is a new part of me.
A part of me I'd never seen before and the black spec on it is new too.
It's my right eye.
The white is my optic nerve and the black spec is a mole. Yep, a mole on the back of my eyeball!
I'd never heard of anyone having similar before but apparently it's not that rare.
 
I'd had a lot of headaches and my first port of call was the opticians for a check up to see if my vision or a need for glasses had caused my constant migraines. After examination she went back to my right eye for another inspection and asked if I knew about the mole at the back of my eye, which I didn't.
I was called back for photos which I had Monday and I'm now being referred to the hospital just to make sure that it's OK.
 
Fingers crossed!

  7. Oohh, that picture is freaky. Before I read your post I thought it was about a planet haha! I suffer headaches too and am off to the opticians on Friday to have my eyes tested. I'm actually quite a mole-y person so I wonder if I have one too? We'll see!

    Fingers crossed for you that everything is fine x
