We just took my six week old son to the docotor to ask about the white dot in his eye. We are being sent to a specialist to see if it could be a cataract. Does a spot in the eye always mean that the eye is not healthy? Could it be something else like discoloration?
We are not sure how long it will take to see the specialist. What is the time frame my son should see one?
So difficult to answer your query without knowing more. There are all kinds of "white dots" that can occur in an eye.
