Ophthalmology & Optometry/Baby with iris 'spike' going into pupil


wendi wrote at 2014-01-15 04:40:14
My daughter has this. She is 16 years old now. I first noticed it when she was 5 days old. She was examined at that time and we were told it happened when the layers of  her eye were forming. The iris "stuck" in that area, creating the strand. She has perfectly healthy eyes. She does not see the iris strand in her field of vision at all. No worries!!
