I’ve noticed that my 4-month-old has crossed eyes. Is this something I should be worried about?


In most cases, crossed eyes clears up by itself within the first two months of infanthood. Misalignment of the eyes is actually quite common, but it is still something you should be concerned with if it persists after the first two months.

Without treatment, crossed eyes may cause a visual disability. It is important that your child receives treatment to align the eyes as soon as possible. Talk to your doctor and a child’s ophthalmologist for more information about treating crossed eyes. The assessment usually includes a light reflex test and a test of depth perception, and the treatment typically involves glasses or eye patches.


Always check with your doctor regarding questions on your health for you or you baby.
