• What is the risk in dealing with a cyst on newborn's eye?


    My grandson is one day old and the pediatrician found a cyst on one of his eyes. They said something about lancing it or possible surgery. What is this and is it dangerous?


    Please take the child to an ophthalmologist at once—either a comprehensive ophthalmologist, a pediatric ophthalmologist, or an oculoplastics specialist. I cannot say what it is without seeing it or knowing more details, but the ophthalmologist will have more experience with this sort of thing than a pediatrician, in most cases.
