pale eye disc

My daughter has been diagnosed with pale eye disc at the age of 7. She is 12 now, goes for checkups once a year. Vision normal, disc pale pink. When the pale disc were first diagnosed she had a brain scan (tomography) which was normal. She also was a premature baby, born two weeks early (induced due to my pre-eclampsia). She only sees the ophtalmologist because her GP said that the colour of the disc might be natural, to be honest I was not worried any more after the scan was all right, vision too and what the GP said. But now I am worried after reading some stuff on the net. So to sum up pale pink discs in both eyes for the last 5 years, so far vision normal.

Pale disc is a subjective exam.  It may be normal for her.   Get a second opinion.
