I'm 15 with PWS on the area around my eye, and though it's almost completely gone now through laser treatments, it was pretty noticeable when I was in elementary school. I thought it might be reassuring for you to know that I was never teased because of it. Most kids just asked me what happened, assuming it was a bruise, and after I explained that it was a birthmark, they were very accepting of it, and a lot of them just asked me questions and stuff. A lot of kids even thought it was cool, because it made me unique. Needless to say, I often dreamt of the day when it would be completely gone, just because I was self concious of it being on my face. Now that I'm at that day, I think that laser treatments were completely worth it.
