A "white pupil" in a child is always an emergency and you need to be referred to a pediatric ophthalmologist ASAP. There are some very serious things that can cause this including a malignant tumor (retino
blastoma), malformation of the inside of the eye
, pediatric cataract and some others
HOWEVER there are other less serious things than can cause this and the last three parents that came to these eye
forums and posted pictures with white reflex got GOOD news from the ophthalmologist.
