Hey all,I just love Adobe products and I thought I'd see what you think about this idea. I heard of a story of a dad whose son had retinoblastoma, cancer of the retina that can be detected by flash showing up as 'white eye'. Now we have such cool tools in photoshop and lightroom, I wondered if Adobe has ever thought of creating a 'white eye' detector? We can enhance landscapes and make portraits perfect with Photoshop and Lightroom, so couldn't there be a cool tool for the masses for sifting a catalog of images to find the 'white eye'. I realize this is probably not a quick thing to develop and maybe I'm just dreaming but I thought I would ask.

You can also get white eye from other flashes or other reflections - which are much more common than cancers in the eye.

Our red eye FAQs have mentioned the possibility of white eye indicating a cancer for many years.
