Your son is most likely to be having allergy in his eyes. This allergy could be vernal conjunctivitis(common at his age) or something else. Turning his eyes upwards and sideways may be due to the irritation because of allergy. However, an examination by an opthalmologist is required to say anything with surity. Your son would require anti-allergy drops and even steroid drops, if allergy is severe. To read more about vernal conjunctivitis, you can follow this link - I hope, it helps. Thanks.
