Went to the GP earlier this week to get the kids checked over (just chesty) and while we were there I asked the GP about a spot that I had noticed in Jack's eye ... apparently its a Pterygium (pronounced more like ter-issy-ium I think? )
I'm really surprised we are BIG on suncream and hats in this house - and the kids just dont play outside when its the hottest time of day ...
I'm a little shattered that Jack has this- and would love to know if anyone else out there has children with it??? apparently while it is benign .. there isn't anything they can do - and there is no cure other than surgery (which is only done if it starts to obscure his vision).
I know I shouldn't google (but I did ) .. the GP was kinda meh about it .. but I am still worried ..
the spot in his eye is this small (if the link works?) link
