Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It is not unusual for babies your child's age to look all over the place. This is nothing to worry about.
I am a little confused, however, about what the pediatrician found when he examined your baby. Did you mean to say that he found cataracts during an exam?
If there are cataracts present this, of course, is not normal and needs to be investigated further. If the pediatrician, on the other hand, did not find anything wrong with your babies eyes that is a good thing. However, a pediatrician really doesn't have the equipment or training to do a complete eye exam.
If you are concerned I would take your baby to a pediatric ophthalmologist for a complete eye exam. If nothing is found to be wrong then you can feel confident that everything is OK with your baby.
Does this make sense to you?

Are you still there?
No, there are NO catarats. He made the light test, you know?
He's apparently ok, but the pediatrician said to pay attencion and to go there when he's 4 months old, but for me it's such a long time...
He looks all over the place, but for me it doesn't seem to have anything interesting, like a white roof for instance. And my question is, what can be the problem? And wainting until 4 months old isn't too much time? What can I do?
I'm really sad because he really is interested in me and the father and to other people and he laughs a lot, but he doesn't look to us. It seems like he don't sees us. But on the other hand, he do looks a lot, like his eyes are not stoped, he looks in all directions and laughs to whatever he sees, so I think he sees, but then why don't he looks to my face? Every baby book say that reall small babies love to look to their mother's face and to peoples face...
Can you give more information on this? I live in Azores and here there are no ophtalmologist pediatrician ...
