    Default Do I need to worry about his eye?

    I read that if a flash shows a white eye then it's possible an eye problem.
    I have noticed recently DSs photos shows a white eye. I am going to take him to the doctors when they are back.
    But I am a bit paranoid and worried.
    Here's some photos with flash on.
    What do you guys think?ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1419508378.485247.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1419508396.976631.jpg

    Ive never heard of this...i always thought its just the reflection of the flash and what colour pigment you have...ie i have light blue eyes and i always have red pupils in photos...maybe because hes are brown(?) they just flash the white back?

    Maybe Dr google could help just to see if its a possibility?

    I read something about someone picking up a cancerous tumour from looking at a child's photo. If you are worried then take him. Peace of mind is important.

    There is a private group on FB called 'little four eyes' it's a group for parents of kids in glasses. Join it and post this pictures in there, they know sooo much about kids eyesight and there has been a few posts about this sort of thing. I think there is something in particular you need to look for and there is a lot of pics that look similar but it's nothing to worry about. Join the group and they will tell you 😊

    Thank you ladies.
    If you take a photo in a dim light with flash you will get reflective eyes, red is normal but if you get a white glow then it's not.
    I have requested the group. Thank you!
    Seeing doctor today

    We went to see the doctors and he said we need to see a specialist ASAP. Here's another 2 photos of my boy, notice one of his eye has a white reflex instead of red.
    Comparing to my daughters, both a red which is normal.

    Glad you went to a doctor, we noticed this in our eldest and it turned out she had cataracts in both eyes, which have now been removed.
    If it is something, be prepared for things to happen pretty fast as they thankfully act very quickly when it comes to children's eye sight

    PM me if you have any questions!
    Good luck x
