Brownish-reddish spot on sclera that is darkening. Treatment ?

i have a brownish-reddish spot on my sclera that i never had in previous years. i also believe it has darkened within the last couple of months. i have read that uv light can be the cause of darkening. does this mean if i reduce my exposure to uv light, then the spot can at least fade (like a tan on my skin)? thanks!

Thanks for the query.
A brownish reddish spot can be a resolving sub conjunctival hemorrhage or a naevus(mole) or any kind of inflammatory reaction..
A SCH resolves over time.
I am not sure whether it can be resolved by stopping exposure to UV light but definitely you can avoid its aggravation...
Hope this information helps..
