"Rylee"? Please, for the love of FSM, stop doing this to your kids! That poor girl has to spend the rest of her life spelling her name to everyone, along with every Makayla/Mikayla/McKayla/, Jaxon, and Kaytlyn.

Better than those "give a like if you want to save this child" pictures people always post.

"You know, your kids eye is kinda messed up.  You should look into that."

"Really?  I never noticed."

AWESOME PARENTING.

I think the point is that they would only see this in pictures where flash was used. It does look oddly asymmetrical but a lot of people would just assume it was a flash or camera thing.

IMHO this is kind of a cool story.

this, although as an eye doc, I'm glad someone else at least told them. It wouldn't be as noticeable without illumination, but any source of leukocoria is cause for alarm.

Wow.  And to think of all the trouble people go to to prevent that reflection from showing up.

not altogether uncommon.  wake me up when Google starts to diagnose disease by evaluating online photos.  it really shouldn't be long.

This is another neat crowdsourced medicine story like the one of the fellow who for a lark decided to pee on his girlfriend's pregnancy test strip and was amazed to find it indicated that he was pregnant, so wrote about it on some social networking site.

Some medically savvy reader told him to seek medical attention immediately. It turns out that the marker hormone used by pregnancy tests is also produced by certain types of testicular cancer. The tiny tumor was found and removed long before it ever would have been otherwise.

good story. now I need to go look through all my daughter's pics.

level of difficulty: I prefer natural lighting and most of her pics aren't flash photography.
 
2014-04-03 01:16:43 PM
or, I could just take some new ones.

WTF? Isn't this story from a few years ago or did this happen again?

Good story and result for kiddo.

I wish Al Gore invented the interwebs sooner, my husband lost the vision in his right eye to this disease as a teen in the 80s.

The kid has Groat's disease?
