    Eyes Problem

    My son born on Aug 10, 2006. His eyes started like this when he was 2 months old. I have consulted doctor and he said it is normal since both eyes seems to move. Please help.

    I can understand that mothers worry, but if the doctor said it's normal then what are you worried about? Are you asking for more opinions?

    I have read in many books that it's very normal for babies to have crossed eyes, and they correct themselves in time.

    If you really need to, you can see a pediatric eye-doctor. From what we have been told (our baby seemed to have a lazy eye) almost all baby eye problems go away.

    Past the age of 6 months your baby should NOT have crossed eyes anymore, by that time the muscles should be strong enough to keep the eyes straight. Sometimes depending on the type of eye lid, you can look a bit crossed eyed, but are not really. I would recommend going to an opthamologist. My son's one eye turn in, usually only when tired, and it happens so quickly then goes normal right away. My husband noticed it and I didn't, I did see it in pictures but I thought it was just an illusion from the picture.I was not sure my husband was right, but we did take him to the specialist, and he does have a bit of a lazy eye, not bad enough to treat, but does require monitoring ever 9 months or so,it can never hurt to get it checked out.

    Same opinion as Capital

    Up to 6 monthes of age, crossing eyes are completely normal. Afterwards, it it better to have a professionnal to look at it
