Our newborn had a red spot next to iris on his left eye. Spot now has dispersed through the cornea and faintly visible. Should we be concerned?

Our newborn had a red spot next to iris on his left eye. Spot now has dispersed through the cornea and faintly visible. Should we be concerned?

Usually not: If the blood spot is fading, and did not really get into the cornea, it most likely was a subconjunctival blood spot. The blood should not get into the cornea. The cornea is the clear covering over the iris. The blood should stop at the visible edge of the iris, which is actually the edge of the cornea.

This can lead to a blinding retinal detachment, sensed as a veil like sensation ultimately with vision loss. If you have flashes, floaters or a veil-see your eye doctor immediately. ...Read more
