Re: 3 year old cross eyed
My son is 2, and has had this for a year. His eye sticks sometimes, and turn inward when he looks around. He has been going to a pediatric ophlamoligist for a year now. He goes every 6 months. He has another appt in June to see about getting fitted for glasses. The dr told us that while it looks like a serious problem, it isn't. But the younger you catch it, the better chance of getting it taken care of quicker. When I first noticed my son with it, he wasn't quite a year old yet, and it scared me a lot. But now I know what it is, so I feel somewhat better. I still feel bad for him though, because it is affecting him more and more. Since that eye shuts down basically when it turns or sticks, he can't see out of it at that time, and he falls and loses his balance. So that's something that I am going to have to talk with the eye dr about. But hang in there, it will all be ok. It's pretty common.
