Louise Bice 34, was shocked when his daughter Aretria born with big blue eyes since no one in his family had that character.
Every time strangers see the girl from England, they praise Louise in the eyes of her son, between “six or seven times a day,” she admits. However, his striking eyes hide a strange and serious illness.
“I never expected his eyes to be so bad.”
However, six months into Aretria’s life, the lights caused her to scream in pain.
When his parents Louise and Connor They took him to the doctor, who gave them a devastating diagnosis: he had a serious case bilateral congenital glaucoma a genetic abnormality that causes severe and increased pressure on the optic nerve.
Aretria needed immediate surgery, so she underwent surgery in June at a children’s hospital in Birmingham. However, subsequent examinations showed that the intervention failed, so the girl, who is now 10 months old, was operated on again in August.
“I never expected Ari’s big, beautiful eyes to be such a bad thing. Suddenly, one day his eyes became cloudy; “One minute he was fine and after 15 minutes he was completely changed,” his mother told the Daily Star.
“He has 5% vision left in his right eye”
Louise added: “The specialists had to do terrible tests and I discovered that he had lost sight in both eyes. After two operations we still don’t know what will happen: He only has 5% vision left in his right eye.“.
The mother also complains that “if someone says that she is weird, that she has big eyes instead of cute ones, we can check her, but none of us knew that this was a warning sign“.
Likewise, he concludes by saying “I think if he had been diagnosed with it before the pressure got under control, he might not be blind in one eye by now.“.
