Q.

Sensitive eyes

My 11 month old has light blue eyes. when i take her outside for longer than a few minutes the next day her eyes are red. if i look closely it looks as though the vessels in the eyes are inflamed as they are red and it looks like there are teeny tiny lumps just on the outside of the iris. this has happened about 3 times already and its always after she has spent time outside. i dont put her directly in the sun but its still very bright outside even when she' s in the shade. could it be the sun or the wind maybe? is it something to worry about or not?
thank you.

Your baby does seem to be extremely sensitive to sunlight. It would be best to get the opinion of a eye specialist about the best way to deal with this problem.
