BROWN EYES, 2 YEAR OLD
I HAVE A TWO YEAR OLD WHO'S EYES HAVE TURNED BROWN. I TOOK HIM TO A GP AND HE PRESCRIBED SOME EYE DROPS FOR HIM AND SAID THAT I MUST USE THEM FOR 3 MONTHS, IF THERE'S NO CHANGE I MUST BRING HIM BACK FOR FURTHER EXAMINATIONS. I NEEDED TO KNOW YOUR ADVICE FROM A PAEDIATRICIAN POINT OF VIEW .

CAN MY BABY'S BE CLEANSED AND GO BACK TO THEIR NATURAL COLOUR? IF POSSIBLE PLEASE REFER ME TO A SPECIALIST.

REGARDS!

Babies often change their eye colour after the first few months. Many babies are born blue eyed only to develop their true (natural) eye colour, which is often darker, in the following 6-18 months.
