Girl's Facebook Photo May Have Saved Her Vision

Mothers everywhere put up or post cute pictures of their kids - that's no surprise. But a picture posted by one mother on social media actually may have saved her daughter's eyesight.

According to KTVN, the three-year-old was diagnosed with as eye disease after her mother posted a picture of her on Facebook. One of the child's eyes appeared to be glowing.

WREG reports one of her friends wrote, "Hey, I'm sure it's nothing. It's probably the lighting, but your daughter's eye is glowing and you might want to have it checked out because it's a sign there could be an issue with her eye."

Taylor took her daughter, Rylee, to a doctor, and she was diagnosed with Coat's disease, which is a condition that leads to vision loss or blindness. WTVT spoke with a doctor who explains Rylee's case in depth.

According to the Coats Disease Foundation, if the condition is found early on there is a chance of saving some level of vision.

WREG reports Rylee is getting treatment every few months and is still able to see. Taylor said Rylee has never experienced problems with her vision before but is very grateful for her friends who noticed.
