Dr. Rick :

Hi. I can help you tonight.

Dr. Rick :

Is it possible for you to take a picture, place it on your computer and upload it here for me to look at?

Dr. Rick :

Save your picture on your computer, someplace easy to find it such as your desktop.

Upload your picture to the site by browsing for it as directed.

Once you do that it gives you a bunch of links you can use, one of which says "direct link for layouts" It is important to use this box. It is the forth one down from the top of the page.

Copy the link inside this box and then paste it into your justanswer dialog box and send it to your expert.

Has an ophthalmologist seen the child? Has the growth been present since birth? Does she have any other medical problems or growth issues? Are there any "skin tags" on her ears? What lid is it on? Is it blocking her vision?

Do you have any more information as requested above? How about uploading a picture of her eye as outlined above?
