A Photo Can Save a Life

Sometimes, 'red eye' coming up in your kids' photos can be a good thing, even if it is not a feature most photographers wish to see!  It is actually a very, very good thing to happen, as it indicates healthy eyes.  If 'white eye' shows up, that's not so good...time to call the doctor on...

The following text and the above photo are from the website, and I quote:

"Retinoblastoma is a rare form of eye cancer that's 98% curable if detected early. Children up to age 5 should be screened. It's easy. Simply take a flash photo of your child. Where you'd normally see the “red spot” effect in the eye, Retinoblastoma can show up as a white spot. And that's a sign that you should visit your doctor.
For more information, visit and learn to look for white eye."
