  1. This is a serious issue and needs immediate attention. Phototheraphy light is administered to babies that are born with jaundice. This is quite common. However, the distance between the light (phototheraphy) and the jaundiced baby should be carefully monitored because the lights (ultra violet lights) can be extremely damaging to the eyes (retina) and the body tissue. This is exactly what happened as seen in the pics that were distributed. The lights were too hot and too close to the babies and actually roast them. Sad indeed! I am just wondering if there are other ways of treating jaundice because parents are going to be very skeptical of this nowadays. The procedure must be modernized if possible.
