CAMP PENDLETON SOUTH, Calif. — Keaton Nelson was born on October 12, 2018, in La Jolla to a Camp Pendleton military family. There was a surprise his parents did not envision.

“We talked to the pediatrician and she said ‘I’ve never seen this before,’” said Jennie Nelson, Keaton’s mom. 

It was his eyes. 

“When he came out, I looked at him and I was like, ‘he has a blurry left eye,’” said Jennie. “My husband looked at him and said ‘yeah, he does. Like that’s not normal.’”
