Yesterday I had to go to an ophthalmologist for an appointment. It was a recheck visit. I saw him last one year ago, and before that one and a half years ago. I have some dark spots on my left iris, that started to appear and change and grow. Well the good news is that Dr. Zigler the specialist still feels that these are benign pigment changes, not malignant growths. That means I still get to keep my eye! (Yes if they are decided to be malignant it is recommended that my eye comes out.) Here is a photo from last February. The spot at nine o'clock is bigger now but you get the idea.
