Sup Travellers?! It is a fact that you must never underestimate the power of a Facebook post. Just recently, a Mississippi mother had her 3 year old's eyesight saved because of one. According to Today Health, Tara Taylor posted a picture of her daughter Rylee online showing off a new hairdo that she got. But it wasn't the hairdo that caught people's attention. 

In the photo, Rylee's left eye, and only her left, had an eerie glow to it. The glow caused some concern among onlookers. Taylor's friend, Stacy Carter, advised her to see a specialist. 

“I knew from a friend that a glow in the eye from a picture can mean there’s something wrong with the eye,” Carter said. “I just texted Tara and told her, ‘Hey, it could be nothing, it could just be the flash, but there could be something wrong with Rylee’s eye.’”

Rylee was taken to a retina specialist and the specialist diagnosed her with Coats disease which is a rare condition that can lead to blindness. It involves blood vessels that become dilated in the retina and leak fluid that accumulates in the eye, causing vision loss.

While it is unlikely Rylee will recover full central vision in her eye, laser treatment and injections have restored some of her peripheral vision.

She may still be blind in one eye but thanks to that Facebook photo she may not become completely blind. Let's hope that she can actually make a full recovery. It's improbable but still possible. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
