Which babies are most prone to eye problems?
Intermountain Registered Dietitians, Nutrition & Dietetics, answered on behalf of Intermountain HealthcareBabies born prematurely, as well as babies born with breathing problems or nerve problems, are more prone to certain eye problems. Although the eyes are one of the first organs in the body to begin developing, they are not completely developed until several weeks after birth, even in a baby born at full term. It is important for your newborn to have a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist (a medical doctor trained in diseases of the eye) within the first few months of life.
What is the treatment for Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid?
Johns Hopkins Medicine answered
The appropriate therapy for Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid includes oral medications and sometimes surgery. Because dry eye syndrome is often associated with MMP, dry eye therapy might be beneficial. Special gas permeable contact lenses are also beneficial.
What are the odds of my child having a keyhole pupil?
David K. Coats, MD, Ophthalmology, answered on behalf of American Academy of Ophthalmology's EyeSmartThe keyhole pupil is known as a coloboma. The keyhole is formed by improper fusion of tissues of the eye during the time of development of the baby before birth. The odds of the condition occurring depends on its cause. There are a number of conditions that are associated with the formation of a coloboma. If it is a condition that runs in the family, the odds can be as high as 50/50 that another child in the family may be born with the condition.
