white eye?

Aug 13th, 2011, 23:43 PM   #1
 
Hey. Missed me?
In photos, theres red eye. My friends fiance was telling me about something he'd read in a paper when a woman diagnosed her friends child with retinoblasta through a photo on facebook? The child's eye reflected white in the photo, not red.
Does anything else cause this to happen? There are 3-4 photos of this happening in photos of C today, all in the same eye? Is this something that should be checked or just kept an eye on, or not relevant at all? x

If it happens lots when the photos are taken straight on I'd get it checked (he's right that it can be a sign of retinoblastoma), but if the photos are taken at about a 45 degree angle it's quite common to get a white reflection in one eye x

Hmm... That was a mistake!!! Lol. I'd never heard of it til he said it back then, but I have hears of it a few times since then. Something about cancer cells reflecting White or something like that? But obv google gives u the worse, and I'm looking for any other causes but it doesn't want to cooperate. But Christ, how can I take this child to the doctors again?!?! X

I've never uploaded photos on tapatalk but I think it's quite easy to do. Is it always the same eye? If you can, take lots of photos with a flash in a darkish room - if it's anything to worry about you'll probably see something in most of them. Try to get him looking at you if you can x x

White eye is very common since digital cameras. Retinoblastoma is relatively rare (thank god) but is a white mass at the back of the eye which can show up on some photos as a white eye as the flash hits the back of the eye it reflects back as a white eye. If you are worried I would go to your gp and ask for a referral to your local eye department, you could also take your lo to A&E if you are really concerned x
