  • I don't know. Call your doctor and take her in tomorrow morning. That's the quickest way to get good news. Oh - and take a copy of the photo with you.

  • First, I do think you should call your doctor if only just to have them give her eyes a checkup and make you feel better.
    Second, from looking carefully at the photo I think that it is a reflection of flash. The reason is that her head is at an angle from where the picture was taken. Both her eyes show reflection of flash. It appears as though her head is turned a bit and she may have caught more of a reflection in one eye.
    Again though, it would be best to have her evaluated. Do not hesitate for that.
