Hello doctor,

My daughter is one and a half months old. One of her eyeballs appears to be more inside than the other. What should we do? Should we consult a specialist or will it get alright as the baby grows?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern.

  • Please provide me with more information so that I can guide you better.
  1. Does your baby have any vision problems?
  2. Did she reach all her milestones according to her age?
  3. How about her social smile, looking at her mother, and playing, etc.?
  4. Did you notice any change in the movement of her eye ball
  5. Is she able to move both her eyes normally or did you notice something different?
  • If these were normal, then you do not have to worry.
  • I would also like to add that a weakness of the ocular muscles (which help in eye movements) can sometimes cause an abnormal eye movement.

But, there is nothing to worry about as such. Regards
