Q.

How do I cover a permanent white scar in my cornea.

I was injured by a sharp object at an early age, my eye healed but remained with the white spot that makes me uncomfortable every single day of my life. I have consulted many Optometrists in Cape Town and Johannesburg but they all keep telling me that nothing can be done to remove or cover the white spot because it is deeper they can't peel off the top layer. Please advise!

Hi there


I would suggest seeing an ophthalmologist for their opinion.

Best wishes!
