Usually there are whitish silver color spots looking like black,these are called Betot'spot and it shows Vitamin A deficiency
Another possibility is there may be pigmented spot in the eye for that you have not to worry..

My 14 year old sons eyes continue to dilate several times a day for no reason at all. This only started a few months ago. Back in January he had a seizure with all of his tests coming back normal. He has ADHD and takes Adderall 12.5mg twice a day. He doesn t seem to have any problems when his eyes dilate but I have noticed it is starting to happen more frequently.

I had 2 twisted intestine surgeries-removed ascending colon and top part going across, secum and part of small intestine. Is it possible now that my body is not able to absorb vitamins, minerals and healthy foods I'm eating? I have had 3 neck surgeries where the bones involved are not healing and I wonder if this is a reason why. I take 3,ooo IU's of vitamin D and eat a diet rich in calcium.I rarely eat meat but I do eat some salmon and chicken, and take fiber daily. I'm 59 , weigh 125, 4 ft 5 1/2 in, am relatively healthy besides this-take daily meds for migraines, have IBS(constipation) scoliosis so I walk for exercise, and have fibromyalgia which is under control.

Hi sir, I don’t want to bother u with details, I just want o share my illness, I am 18 now and I am a victim of the guillian burr syndrome or GBS, when I was 12, as I turned 15 it strucked again, the doctors in my country aren’t specialized enough and I cant afford for an abroad treatment, in visits the neuro doctor gave me some pills which contains, vitamin A, B1, B6, B12, and Zinc. However I don’t feel well, some time, and a constant fear runs in my mind is being sick another time, which can really hamper my studies and my personal life. Though I look fine but I really don’t know what to do. I am 92 kgs of weight, and sometime I have muscle aches, and other kinds of muscular illness, I masturbate a lot which I think that refers to my back pain. Apart from that and all these sir what can I do to prevent this life threatening illness to show up again.
