My son was rubbing on his nose with a sharp pencil in his hand and looks like it made a white spot in middle of his eye. What is it?

Thanks for your query.

The presence of white spot in middle of eye can be due to:
1. Trauma to the cornea- can be suspected as he was rubbing on his nose with a sharp pencil
2. Corneal ulcer
3. Patches of dry cornea
4. Any pathology in the inner structures of eye(like iris, lens, retina)

So, it will be better to consult an Ophthalmologist & get a proper examination of the eye done to find out the exact cause.
Based on that, appropriate management steps could be taken.

Please let me know if it is associated with any symptoms like difficulty in vision, pain, redness, excessive watering of eye.
It will help me in making a better diagnosis.

There is no need to worry, your son will be fine.

Wishing him a good health.

Let me know if I need to clarify further.

Thanks & take care.
