Persistent Hyperplastic Primary Vitreous

also known as

Persistent Fetal Vasculature Syndrome

and micropthalmia (small eye)

Our experiences with 3 surgeries, 2 EUA's, patching, contact lenses, scleral shells, prosthetic eyes, emotions, places to get support, links to other sites and general info on vision impairment. I really hope my blog helps and educates and I would love to hear from you with any questions you have, or even if you just need to talk to someone who has "been there, done that".

Bad eye day

So yesterday he didn't open his eye for the whole day, it was swollen and red. I put more Chlorsig in, every two hours (Chlorsig is used to treat conjunctivitis amongst other things. It used to be available on prescription only but it's now over the counter). This morning the eye looked a tiny bit better so I thought I would see how it was by the afternoon. We went to a birthday party and by the end of that it was looking pretty bad still so off we went to the hospital again. We were in and out fairly quickly. He has more Chlorsig drops plus Amoxil antibiotic. It is slightly infected. It looks like it's giving him some pain, he had Panadol and Nurofen yesterday. Pics to the right show what it looks like. Poor little guy.


  1. Hugs Tracie. Poor little man :-( It just seems neverending at the moment doesn't it :-(
    I hope he gets better very soon hun. He really is just the cutest little (okay maybe not so little anymore) boy ♥

  2. Thanks Cass. He's better today, he opened it this morning and it's not as red so it's improving :-) xx
