Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer

A few more clarifications are needed here in order to answer the query better.

Has your grandson been examined by an ophthalmologist?

If so , what exactly has been told about the calcium deposits- Deposits in the retinal blood vessels??

How good is his vision as of now ( with or without glasses if any )?

For what symptoms had he approached the doctor initially?
