What do you think of cat-eye makeup? It’s a signature look for some women. There are tons of cat-eye makeup tutorials on YouTube (yes, I was shocked too) or maybe you already know how to do it.
What if some people really do have cat’s eyes? I’m not saying that they’re covered in makeup. Their eyes actually look like a cat’s. As estimated by the National Organization for Rare Disorders, it affects 1 in 50 to 150,000 babies.
Anti glare glasses aren’t always prescribed for this problem because it doesn’t always affect your eyes. This guide will let you know about this problem in a little more detail so you can get your child medical attention right away if they have it.
What’s the deal with cat-eyes? It’s a signature look for some women. There are millions of cat-eye makeup tutorials on YouTube (yes, I was shocked too) or maybe you’re already a pro.
Did you know some people actually have cat’s eyes? Not that they’ve got permanent makeup on. It’s just their eyes that look like cats. According to the National Organization For Rare Disorders, it occurs in 1 out of every 50,000 to 150,000 babies.
Prescription glasses aren’t always prescribed for this problem because it doesn’t always affect your eyes. Cat-eye syndrome is caused by a genetic defect called coloboma, resulting in elongated pupils that look like cats’ eyes. Get your child checked out right away if they have this problem.
A condition called cat-eye syndrome (CES), also called Schmid-Fraccaro syndrome, is present at birth.
This name comes from how the eyes look in people with this disorder. The cat-eye syndrome is caused by a genetic defect called coloboma, which results in elongated pupils.
You can have deformity not only in your eyes, but also in your ears, heart, skin, and more.
It’s not known why a person develops this condition, says the National Organization For Rare Disorders.
But experts think this problem has something to do with abnormalities in chromosomes. It’s mostly caused by an error when the reproductive cells divide
A chromosome is a thread-like structure made up of genetic material. When a part of one chromosome breaks off and attaches to another, the genetic information is also lost. We call that translocation. A balanced trade, meaning an equal amount of genetic material is exchanged, is generally harmless to the person.
Those with balanced translocations have a slight risk of passing their chromosomal abnormality to their kids. Yet there are also inherited cases of CES, meaning that it could be passed on from parents to babies.
