Q.

Eyes changing colour

My 10 month old daughter has been sick since birth, she used to cry a lot when she was still a baby as if she is being pinched. Her skin became pale when she was 4 months, jaundice was suspected to be the cause. she developed some paches in the face and her body. Now the colour of her eyes is changing. She has been taken to many doctors already but situation is worsening. Please help, I do not want her to loose sight.

It is common for babies eyes to change colour in the first year or two. They are often born with blue eyes that then assumes it permanent natural colour over time. If your child is unwell it is best to see the same doctor consistently, but the eye colour is no reason for concern.
