PA Lt. Gov. Fetterman’s wife detects ‘glow’ in daughter’s eye

Know the glow

It’s not unusual for parents to find a special sparkle in their children’s eyes, but there was something else going on with Grace Fetterman, the 8-year-old daughter of Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman.

In photographs, when Grace’s siblings had the telltale red eye of a camera’s flash, Grace had a yellow glow in one pupil. Her mother noticed the oddity and called the family doctor. With that, she saved Grace from a serious and rare eye disorder that can lead to blindness, Gisele Barreto Fetterman told ABC27 in Harrisburg in an interview posted Tuesday.
