Dear Emma,

Thank you for your query. Not knowing your age, it is difficult to exactly tell you the reason of "white spots". The optician has rightly referred you to an ophthalmologist who shall do a complete work up and decide. Since you are not having any problems, I presume that the spots shall be anything to worry about.

Wishing you the best.
