A couple of days ago my husband took a picture of my 2 1/2 year old son. The picture looked really creepy...my son has dark brown eyes but in the picture the iris of his eyes are white but the pupil is still black... i did some research and found out that there is a condition called leukocoria where the pupil of the eye might appear white during photographs, but didn't find anything on why the iris looks white. We immediately took a second picture and it looked completely normal, his eyes looked brown again. has someone experienced something similar, or is there an eye condition that would cause this to happen during photographs. this has been bugging me and need help.
