What could cause black spot behind eyeball and watering in eyes?

my left eye keeps watering so I went to my gp. He had a good look and shone lights in my eye. He says it may be a blocked tear duct. however, he asked if I get my eyes checked and yes I do as I wear glasses. He says there is a black spot behind my eyeball and I should see an optician as soon as possible. I'm now frightened todeath!

optician does not treat eye ailment.black spot behind eye does not carry any meaning. Punctum dilatation and flushing should be done 2 to 3times in one week.Blocked tear duct isyour main problem which should be taken care of.
