It sounds as if your grandson may have measles. This is the only childhood viral illness that I am aware of that can affect a child's eyes like this.There have been a few cases of measles recently. Was your grandson vaccinated against measles at 9 months and again at 15 months? He may have had a mild form of measles if he was vaccinated.You mention that he is still playing.
