Things to Look for in Your Child

  • Any type of eye crossing, which is a signal of misalignment of the eyes.
  • Changes to your child's normal patterns - if they have to sit closer to the television to see, if their teacher says they need to sit in front of the classroom to see, etc.
  • If you notice your child squinting their eyes to see.
  • Abnoral reflexes of the eyes.
