I've had it for like 6 years, a small brown spot on my eye that never goes away. What is it and how do I get rid of it? Do I have to see an eye doctor?

difficult to see clearly, but its most probably a freckle of the conjunctiva - bothersome only by its appearance. if it hasnt changed significantly over the last 6 years, its unlikely to cause any problems other than cosmetic. they can sometimes be removed, but its a surgical procedure, im afraid.

would advise getting it checked out by an ophthalmologist to be sure.
