Thanks for writing to us.
A dark shadow on the left eye can be due to many reasons. You need to provide some more details like - Was the shadow seen in the retina or the outer white of the eye?
Do you have any vision problems?
Is your eye pressure normal?
These answers will help me in suggesting you better.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
