Is There A Dangerous Membrane In The Whites Of The Eyes In Infants Aged 3 Months?
Tonight doctor, I want to ask. Since my child was born with his left eye there was a white membrane at the end of the eye, the tip of the eye initially only slightly, but now it’s been 3 months seems to be getting bigger. Is the doctor dangerous, and can it be removed? Thanks
The presence of membranes in the eyes of a baby can be caused by several possible causes such as:
Infection of the eye lining
Pterygium or the presence of membranes on the surface of the eyeball
Pinguecula or yellowish stain on the whites of the eyes due to accumulation of fat protein, or calcium in the eye
Congenital anomalies such as cataracts
For this reason, if it is getting bigger, check with the nearest ophthalmologist to determine the cause. Later will be examined and also plan further actions such as if it requires operative measures to remove the white membrane that grows in your child's eyes.
Later the doctor will also carry out checks such as scanning with ultrasound or MRI if needed. Check immediately because the eye is one of the important organs, especially in the early days of your baby's life that can affect its development.
