My son is 16 weeks old and has always had a squint in his right eye, i recently noticed that he has a small "catseye" reflection at the back of his eye inside his pupil, its not the whole of his pupil as i`ve seen in some pictures but maybe an area the size of a grain of rice that relects from his retina. In most photos he doesn`t get redeye, but its not glowing white either.

In these pics you can see the normal sharp glint of the camera flash but also the small whitish haze in his right pupil...does retinoblastoma look like a possibility or am i being paranoid?

I`d really appreciate it if maybe you could copy/paste the links and have a look for me as i`m quite worried. We have a referral to a specialist but i don`t know when that will be so could do with some input please..
