Memphis – Tara Taylor posted a picture of her 3-year-old daughter Rylee on Facebook to show to friends.

Taylor had no idea how that picture would end up helping her daughter, and according to a report from WREG in Memphis, the picture showed her daughter’s left eye glowing.

While most people would have thought it was caused by the flash, two of Taylor’s friends told her she might want to have a doctor take a look at her eye.

“They said ‘Hey, I’m sure it’s nothing. It’s probably the lighting, but your daughter’s eye is glowing and you might want to have it checked out because it’s a sign there could be an issue with her eye,’” said Taylor.

Rlyee was taken to her pediatrician and later to a retina specialist with Baptist Eye Clinic.
