Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer:

It appears that she is experiencing the symptom of Lazy eye called Strabismus. This occurs due to the weakness and/or imbalance co-ordination of the eye muscles. It is important that she follow-up with the pediatric ophthalmologist (eye doctor) for closer evaluation with complete eye examination including refraction and correction of refractive error. Correcting the lazy eye now, either with glasses (containing prism) or with surgery, will prevent the permanent loss of vision (ambylopia) in the affected eye after about 9 years. This is a well-known problem and often correctable as stated. I suggest that you take the child to the eye doctor for closer evaluation and correction.

It was a pleasure to assist you. Please, allow me get credit for my time and effort in assisting you and press the ACCEPT button for this assist. I will be glad to answer additional questions until you are satisfied. Thank you so much.

A Positive Feedback and/or Bonus is welcomed and appreciated.
