Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
Without seeing the dark mark, it is hard to tell exactly what the diagnosis might be. Nevi or freckles do occur on the surface of the eye but typically don't darken until adolescence. Bad things like melanomas would be highly unlikely in a three year old. You are very smart to have this evaluated by an ophthalmologist to assure that it is normal for your child.
