So was this MN...or another forum???

I do recall something last year, where someone posted a photo in their profile, for the professionals on MN to have a look, but I don't think that was this case.

You are right Sammy, it is amazing.

waves socks in front of slubbsy's face wink

It wasn't the one last year. That was a school play photo or something....

Yes, I read that today and thought I'd seem something on here about it. Don't know if it was the child concerned in this story though.

Scary that she was potenttially only a week away from a significantly different prognosis.

where have you beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen?

what is going ooooooooooooooooooooooooooon?

I have asked like a million times.

Are you OK? I was a bit worried.

DontNeedAnything Wed 27-Aug-08 18:00:33

No you asked twice (yes I did a name check blush.)

I have been waiting for a) more people to miss me sad and b) you to pop up on a thread so I could put you out of your misery.

I am fine....just got back from a great but exhausting holiday (Disney).

No real reason for the change...just because I can...

Slubberdegullion Wed 27-Aug-08 18:02:39

Oh I think I asked more than twice. I certainly thought it more than twice.

yeah, the one from last year was a photo that one of the parents had of someone from the school..

She didn't know whether to go to the head to bring it up or to go straight to the childs parents...but were worried incase they got them worried about nothing...

didn't hear outcome...

read the above stort though and thought it may have been a Good publicity for mn for once..grin.

Something like that was on GMTV last year.

Made me check all my photos of my LO just in case.

So is it the red eye or the other eye reflecting light?

DontNeedAnything Fri 29-Aug-08 19:09:41

I think the red eye is normal. The dark eye is abnormal.

Red-eye is not unusual on photos. it is the fact that the 2 eyes are different that is the problem. There are also artefactual problems that can cause it but it shoud be followed up professionally where it is seen to rule out conditions like Rb.

The red eye is normal. A white pupil in a photo should always be checked out.
