Default Venous Malformation under eye

My 8 yr old daughter went to Dr. Geronemus yesterday for treatment of what we were told was a hemangioma (since birth). It seems she has the hemangioma plus a VM under her lower eyelid. She is at the age where she is upset and feels she looks like a freak.

Dr. Geronemus did laser surgery to help w/ the hemangioma. He said in time we'd need to see someone else.

Can anyone tell me if this VM will affect her seriously with her eyesight or her brain or whatever? i'm freaking out since we thought it was a hemangioma all this time.

Thank you
