According to Ali Mearza, surgeon and director at Ophthalmic Consultants of London, the main symptom to look out for is pigmented lesions in your eyes, which are essentially brown or black spots on the white of the eye or on the iris.

“It’s a particular concern if these spots increase in size or change colour,” said Meara.

Your vision can also be affected, causing blurred vision, flashes or floaters, she notes.
