Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

That is a very good question.

Dr. Rick :

There are a number of reasons that an eye can become white when it is blind. The most common would be a mature cataract. Also, a total retina detachment can cause the eye to be white as can corneal decompensation.

Dr. Rick :

Blind eyes also tend not to point straight ahead anymore either.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
