911Doctor :

Hello,

911Doctor :

When did you first notice these spots?

Customer:

I have noticed the one on the right eye before when looking at her i dont know excatly how long the other two in left eye i just noticed today when i checked her eyes

911Doctor :

Does she have any medical problems that you know of?

Customer:

She has Slight hemipeligia a form of cerable palsy

911Doctor :

okay...

911Doctor :

there are very few problems with the 'sclera' or white part of the eye.

Customer:

I never knew this site existed and i was looking on the internet for awnsers because her primary care wont be open until monday.

911Doctor :

it is possible that these grey spots will go away, but if they do not....

911Doctor :

they are likely to be a form of 'freckle' or 'mole' in the eye itself.

911Doctor :

There is no need to worry too much about this today and no rush to get her to her doctor to look at it...

Customer:

Does this seem like anything that could be serious

Customer:

ok

911Doctor :

no, it does not seem like anything that could be serious....

Customer:

is this something u see often ?

911Doctor :

of course, there are all kinds of bizzare and rare diseases out there and I can't tell you 100% that this is no problem at all, but what I can tell you is that a good pediatrician will take a look at this problem and be able to tell you right away if there is anything to be concerned about...

911Doctor :

probably, all that he/she will do is make a note of this and follow it...

Customer:

Thank you so much for your time!

911Doctor :

if the spots enlarge or spread then there would be good cause to consult an eye doctor, but, while it is important to get your daughter's eye's looked at by her doctor, it is not something you need to do today...

911Doctor :

as i said, probably just a freckle or mole in the sclera...

911Doctor :

and you are welcome....

911Doctor :

happy new year.

Customer:

Happy new Year to u too!!
