    Missing Pigmataion?

    I am 54 and went for an eye exam due to floaters in my eye. The doctor during the examine told me that there were 2 very small black spots on my eye. The pigments were damaged due to the sun or lazor etc. and could not be corrected. I am able to see fine but am worried that this might mean I will lose sight at some point in that eye. She wants to recheck this in 2 years but that is such a long time to wait. Is this a common condition and could I have possibly had this since I was born as I never went to a eye doctor. Thank you for taking the time to read my question. Any advise would e greatly appreciated.
