A freckle in the back of the eye refers to a choroidal nevus, a common, benign, flat, pigmented growth under the retina. Such nevi almost always have no effect on vision. However, if growth of a nevus is documented by periodic observation or photographs of the retina, it may be undergoing transformation into a malignant melanoma of the eye. You should have your "freckle" checked by an eye doctor.
