Can get checked with optometrist

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX

There does not seem to be any problem with your eye. Eyes usually come in many shapes and sizes. You may check if someone else in your family has similar shape, then it may be genetic.

By eyeballs, I guess that you mean the white portion of the eye appears to be bluish. It is usually seen in conditions that cause thin sclera. It is associated with some some genetic conditions like Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Ehler's Danlos Syndrome. Both are rare conditions and have associated other symptoms like brittle bones in osteogenesis imperfecta.

Ehlers Danlos syndrome has imperfect collagen formation. Collagen is needed to keep the integrity of skin and other tissues. Its deficiency can cause hyperextensible skin, hypermobile joints, large vessel fragility etc. Hyperextensible
skin can cause rectangular shape of eyes.

It is better to get the eyes examined by an optometrist and ophthalmologist to rule other associated conditions of the eyes. I think that it is also better to see a doctor to get a physical examination and tests done.

Hi Doctor,

Yes Doctor It is Genetic as My Grand Mother Had Same Kind of Eyes, and Bluish Color is the Black Ball within the Eye and not the white Portion

Brief Answer:
Seems a harmless variation

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

It seems like a harmless variation of eye colour and shape. It does not seem to be associated with any other symptoms or syndrome and seems to be genetically inherited.

You may want to find out if she had any specific symptoms or disorders that were related to eyes.

Otherwise, I do not think that there is much to worry about.

Regards
