  • I never heard if it. I suggest seeing a pediatric Ophthalmologist if this is concerning you.

  • White eye reflection doesn't necessarily mean eye cancer. It can also be due to other conditions and can even be seen in occasional pictures of healthy eyes under certain lighting conditions. But you should see your doctor just to be sure.

  • For medical information, check out The doctors and nurses at my local children's hospital give all parents of their patients this website. Enter the symptoms in the box to do the search. Talk to your doctor. If your doctor doesn't think that their is anything to be concerned about, but you feel that you do, make and appt with a pediatric eye specialist.
