African Violet has spots

Hello!!
My African Violet plant all of a sudden ( within a weeks time) has spots. Can anyone help identify?  I've tried googling it, but cannot find anything similar to it.

    Could the leaves have been splashed when you watered it?

  • I water it at the base......Is that what it looks like when water gets on the leaves?

    Sunshine on the leaves and water acting like a magnifying glass to burn them was my first thought too.

    It looks from the photo as if the spotted leaves are all on one half of the plant … the half facing the sun? 🤔
