  • Hello:I don't know if this is the same thing your husband has, but I too have a scar inside my left eye. The opthamologist said it was in the shape of a clover. He then asked if I had ever lived with cats, I said no. So what is it from? He didn't know.I suppose the most important question is does he have any symptoms from it? I don't, and have had the scar for a very long time.Hope this helps...

  • if this scar is on the cornea you should remember the accident... If recent, it can be treated if not severe also, but if deep it may need keratoplasty.... or corneal transplant... If in the conjunctiva (the covering of the white part of the eye) try to be restricted to follow up in oreder not to limit the eye movement... If in the sclera(the white part itself) follow up is important to prevent its bulge under normal intraocular pressure.... If it's a greyish patch, this may be a neavus and don't think of it because it's 99% benign.... I can't give you the definite answer without seeing the condition
