White spot of left eye
Hi

My 6month LO has white spot on his left eye, I assume he was born with it can' t thing of any other reason cause this was discovered just before 1 month when he could open his eyes. Specialists in CPT do not have a solution for it. Can you recommend someone else or something that can help, cause I do not want to give up....

It is difficult for me to answer your question without being able to examine your baby. I presume that you have seen an eye specialist and that your baby does not have a congenital cataract. The best person to see is Dr R. Grotte who is Head of the Eye Dept at Red Cross Children's Hospital [Tel 021-6585111]Try and get an appointment to see her.
