Hello! I'm new here. Just looking to get this off my chest and gain support if anyone has been through the same/similar situation:
I think my son has a unilateral anterior polar cataract im his left eye. I originally noticed a tiny white dot in the middle of his pupil when he was 2 weeks old. My pediatrician saw him at his 1 month well visit yesterday and I brought it to his attention (I called when I noticed it but they didnt think it warranted a sick visit). He couldnt see the dot at first, but upon closer inspection noticed it. He didn't seem overly concerned but referred us to a pediatric ophthalmologist for a specialists opinion.
Other than the dot, his vision seems to be ok (red reflexes are apparent and he tracks with both eyes) & he is healthy and thriving.
I'm just nervous of what the diagnosis will be. There is so little info available on it, & the outcomes seem to vary greatly from no vision impairment, surgery, patching, to blindness.
We go to the specialist in 2 weeks.
Sorry for the long post - just wondering if anyone has been through this? TIA
