Ophthalmologist 's  Response

It seems from the history that your 3 year old son is having fever and headache and sensitivity to light. These complaints indicate infection either viral or bacterial. This requires medical treatment by antibiotics. Since he is also having sensitivity to bright light he requires treatment to prevent complications.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
