Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
As a father of five children myself I fully understand your concern and, no, I would not just pass this off as "normal for him"
From what you have posted it may be that he is suffering from an anterior segment/tear film
issue. If this is the case, then simple lid hygiene and artificial tears may take care of the problem.
That being said, you son should be examined by a pediatric ophthalmologist to make sure nothing else is going on. Could this be from his small cataract? Yes, that may be what is going on but, as a father, I would feel better if he was seen by his ophthalmologist.
I do not believe this is an emergency; an appointment in the next week or two should be just fine -- although if he could be seen sooner I'm sure it would be better for you since, if I was in your shoes, I'd not be able to relax until I knew what was going on. :)
Does this answer your question to your satisfaction?
