Allergy or infection: Could be allergies this time of year but could also be an infection called periorbital cellulitis or its close cousin orbital cellulitis. Periorbital and orbital cellulitis are both potentially fatal so your child needs to be seen asap.

Do all babies shut their eyes and cry in bright lights or sunlight?

Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
No: No, certainly not all babies and children, but many do. Some people are simply more sensitive to bright lights than others. Many kids hate flash photos, for instance, while others don't seem to notice an issue. However, children who complain about pain with light or children who previously were fine and now complain about a new problem with bright lights should be evaluated.

What are some complications of laser eye surgery?

Dr. Andrew Shatz
Ophthalmology 26 years experience
Very Few: While laser eye surgery (lasik, prk) is very safe, there can rarley be complications that may affect vision. Most commonly, the eye may not achieve perfect vision, and an enhancement may be needed later. Dry eyes can occur and last for several months, and small abrasions may be present for a few days. More rarely, surface skin can sometimes grow under the flap, causing blurred vision.

Possible: Thyroid disease can cause eye problem but many other conditions can also cause this: allergy, sinus infection, tumor...See your doctor to have your thyroid level checked. If it's normal, then the thyroid is not causing the eye problem. Good luck.
