Hey guys, I'm 22 year old male, Asian I had these when I was a kid of these black spots and I've been reading up on the internet for answers.

I looked up Scleral Melanocytosis & Alkaptonuria, I went to a optometrist twice already and they told me that my eyes are perfectly healthy. But I'm also getting chronic dry eyes due to the monitor and I'm also sensitive to sunlight or florescent light. I got glasses when I was 16 and the prescription hasn't changed too much since 6 years ago. I can see without my glasses but I do have them for distance for driving. Since, I'm Asian, Scleral Melancytosis would be the case I think but I need to find out from professionals on this forum to determine what it might be. I use artificial tears (eye drops) to relieve the dryness and burning.

I started to worry about them when I got my ear cartilage piercing because I heard you can go blind from piercing.

Thanks guys!
