Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Naevus of Ota is known to affect eyes and part of the face skin as well. There can be many complications like glaucoma of eye. Firstly you need thorough checkup for any eye complications. Therapy includes camouflage therapy using cosmetics to cover the dark patch, laser therapy, cryotherapy. You can discuss these treatment options with your Cosmetic surgeon.

hi
nevus of ota is very tricky condition .
there is no medicine to cure it
LASER is the best way to treat it
different type of laser are there to treat it ,but fractional will give best result
u need to take 5-9 session of it
better to consult dermatologist
do not try any surgical procedure as there may be chance of worsen of the lesion .
