We often take pictures of our kids because they’re cute, but we can also do it to detect cancer.
Retinoblastoma is a very dangerous form of cancer, and it’s actually the most common eye cancer that affects children. It usually develops in children under 4 years old, and 18 months is the average age of diagnosis.
The good news is that when it’s caught early, retinoblastoma is highly treatable.Early detection can save a child’s vision and their life because when retinoblastoma advances and spreads, it can be deadly.
You can easily check to see if your child has it with the use of your phone!
Retinoblastoma can often be detected with a photo because the flash can cause the pupil to turn white if it’s present.
What you need to do is turn on the flash, and snap a photo of your child – simple as that!If you see white in one or both of your child’s pupils unexplained by lighting conditions — especially if you’ve noticed other retinoblastoma symptoms like squinting or lazy eye, redness or swelling not due to infection, a change in iris color, or vision loss — you should call your doctor immediately.
Please share this with your friends and family members who have kids.In this way you could help them to save their kids’ vision, but also and their lives in case if this dangerous form of cancer is present!
