What do you mean focus in another direction?Does that eye wander?
It doesnt wander but sometimes seems like it is crossed but not all the time.
Cross towards nose or toward the ea
hard to tell.just seems like it is focusing not directly with the other eye
it doesnt happen all the time only sometimes
So, eyes can wander in kids. If it only happens sometimes, but not usually an issue.
If it does it some of the time or most of the time, then there may be issues to eye development. Commonly referred to as lazy eye.
This may be related to a refractive error with can be corrected with glasses.
Sometimes, it appears the eyes are not working together but in reality they are.
An ophthalmologist or a pediatric ophthalmologist should be able to determine what is going on.
As well as get a sense for the eye development and vision appropriate for that age.
is it common that with this she closes that eye in sunlight? It doesnt seem to bother her she just has always done that
If that is a poor seeing eye she can do that.
Sometimes it is just out of habit.
ok that makes sense. I guess we will make an appt just to see if she needs glasses or anything. Thank you for your help.
