Black/Brown mark on Caruncula Lachrymalis

As the title suggests, I have a sizeable black/brown coloured mark on the Caruncula Lachrymalis of my right eye. (It's the small, round pink bit in the corner).

Looking back at photographs it definately wasn't there in 2004, but in Jan 07 I suffered a head injury (broken/nearly broken nose) which may have caused it to appear. I'm not really sure if this is the case, but the mark has definately been there since June 07.

I'm thinking it could maybe be a blood clot, but realistically I have no idea.
It doesn't hurt, itch, "burn", sting, my eyes don't water more than normal, there's no other discharge and I can see just fine; bit of synus trouble since the broken nose, but apart from that everythings fine.

Anyone got any ideas ?

  • Hi,Just wonder if you got it diagnosed. I found the same thing in the left caruncula of my 3-year-old daughter, which makes me worry. Her left eye sometimes has tears out even if she does not cry.Does anybody know the cause? Please let me know. Thanks!
