    So I was looking at some old photos this morning and I noticed that in one of them, there is a clear white spot in my left eye. Now I know this can be a sign of cancer but it might be something and nothing.

    All the other people in the photo have red eye and one of my eyes has too, but this is just a white spot. Could it be the reflection of the flash?

    I'll post the photo in a minute.

    It's just in the one photo? How old is this photo, exactly?

    I haven't noticed it in others. I think it was taken in May?

    Jaydoh, I don't think it is anything to worry about, I have a couple of them under my eyes, they are called Milia

    That's a skin affliction that occurs around the eyes (I've had one before!), I think the OP means a reflection in their actual eyeball.

    Ohh lord My bad! Thanks for that Scout. Well Jay I am not sure what it is, in my professional TSR opinion, go see a doctor if it concerns you

    Like I say probably something and nothing. I've read up on white eye spots but can't find anything about adults. It's maybe the reflection of the flash like I say as I'm on the centre of the picture.

    Nah that's just a variation on red eye, can be to do with the angle you were facing, shadows or anything like that. That's nothing to be worried about really. It happens in a lot of photos, you may have red eye in one and a different colour in the other, just depends on how the flash caught you

    I'm sure that's the camera flash, I've seen that on a few pictures even when other people have red eyes in the same photo.

    If its still something that's playing on your mind, a doctor or optician can look into the eye and see if there's something there within seconds.


    edit, in that picture you can see a small amount of white reflected in your other eye. I'd guess if you had been standing slightly to the left, you would have seen the white eye effect in that eye instead.
