    It can be really easy to tell, when her eye looks lazy, look at the reflection of light in her eyes. The reflection point should be in the exact same place in each eye. This is easier if you use a penlight or little flashlight. One eye can appear turned, when really it is not. If the reflection is not in the same place it is not normal. This test is called the corneal light reflex.

    All depend how old is your child

    Up to six monthes it's completely normal

    After six monthes if it persists your should consider having a check...
