Retinoblastoma - Symptoms

The condition may be found during routine eye examinations of young babies and toddlers. Otherwise, a child should be referred to us for review if parents notice one or more of the following features suggestive of retinoblastoma:

  • Leukocoria or a white colour of the pupil (the central portion of the eye that is usually black/red), especially with flash photography
  • A strabismus or misaligned eye (one eye turns in/out/up/down when the child is looking straight ahead)
  • Vision problems
  • Red or irritated eyes
