Q.

Sensative Eyes

My son is two and a half and recently whenever we take him out during the day or at night he asks me to block his eyes, this also happens after he wakes from a nap. Should i be very concerned about this and is there any particular reason as to why his eyes r so sensative to light?

This complaint sometimes occurs in children with eye allergies. If you have noticed that his eyes appear to be itchy please ask your doctor to see him.
