keith, myself and several other people have noticed that molly's sclera are blue-grey and not white. here is a picture.<br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v721/JenniesPhotoAlbum/Molly%20Colleen%20Franks/12%20momths/molly.jpg" target="_blank">click here for picture</a><br><br>
do you see it?<br><br>
she has never broken a bone, so I doubt its OI. Anyone here have any ideas? (besides OI and Ehlers danlos syndrome)<br><br>
Her current ped (the kind that looks at you for 2 seconds and then says ur all clear) said there was nothing wrong with them. I think he expected to see super blue sclera, the kind you get with OI, but they arent that color.<br><br>
They have been that way since birth, and have gotten a tad darker.<br><br>
What do you guys think? We are changing peds atm, to one that is closer to home. Gonna see them sometime next week.

One of my twins has this also..but it is not all of the white..more towards the corners of his eyes and it is really noticable because he wasn't making alot of eye contact as a baby. (ASD)<br>
I brought it up to our Ped when he was about 5 months or so and they referred us to a pediatric eye doctor. He wasn't concerned, and we went back in 6 months and he said it was most likely something he inherited and to just keep an eye for any other symptoms.<br>
OI has also been ruled out.<br>
I wouldn't worry but see if you can get an eye doctor to take a peek.<br>
Let us know what you find out..Pm me if you'd like!

I really can't tell in the picture. But she is incredibly cute!!! What a beautiful picture!<br><br>
But if I were in your place I would keep digging until I got an answer that I was comfortable with. I hope that answer is that it is nothing. But you don't have confidence in the ped's assessment so you keep going until you find someone you do have confidence in. I don't know what expert to recommend but I'd go beyond pediatrician probably. Pediatric Ophthalmologist?

thank you for the replies. I am in the middle of switching peds, and I am going to make an appointment with a pediatric ophthalmologist, as soon as I can find a good one. T<br><br>
heres just that feeling that somethings not right :p Im sure you know what I mean. Then again, maybe I am paranoid, but after all, they are supposed to be white, not grey/blue
