Thank you so much;

This can happen, and in most cases not harmful. However, considering her age, it needs to be closely evaluated by the pediatric ophthalmologist. It is important that the eye doctor thoroughly access her vision in both eyes, including checking for any difference in the refractive error power or the presence of any astigmatism. The constriction of the pupils should evaluated for any afferent pupillary defect (this ensures that there is no damage in either eye). If there is significant uncorrected vision, she may need glasses, contacts and/or other forms of treatment to improve her vision development. Once corrected early the vision is normal and without future problem. So, I suggest that she follow-up with the eye doctor for closer evaluation.
