Newborn spot in pupil
My baby is two weeks old. I noticed a small light spot in his left pupil. I have watched it for the past several days and have not discerned any change. Is a spot in the pupil always an indication of a problem, or might it go away? I do remember the doctor checking his eyes for cataracts at the birth. We had a discussion about it and noted that the doctor did not see anything abnormal. Are congenital cataracts always present at birth?

By definition congential cataracts are present at birth.  Ask your pediatician to look again also take a photo and enlarge it.  This could be residual tissue from the iris adhering to lens or a clinically insignificant anterior polar cataract
