Question for all of you Moms out there...I have noticed that my baby's eyes are not completely symmetrical! You can't always tell from looking at him straight on, but I can absolutely see the difference when I hold him up in front of a mirror! I was wondering if there were any other Moms out there that have noticed this trait in their child and if so, is it common for some new babies, and will they grow out of it? Not sure the cause of this exactly...and just stressing a bit even though I know it is not a huge deal! Just wondering if it will get better overtime..any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you,
Are you talking about the socket shape or the direction of the eye ball?
if it's the latter, you should mention it to your doctor or health visitor to get a referral to the eye hospital as it may need correcting.
If you are talking about a squint then mention it to the dr, if its the shape of the eyes then its completely normal! We are all asymetrical if you look closely, check yourself out in the mirror, you probably have slightly different eyes too!
My little man had obviously assymetrical eyes because he had a slightly flat head on one side. Now it's rounded out and they look perfect
Hi Sam! Yes, my baby was diagnosed with plagio on one side..his rt back. Ever since we have been dealing with this we have been trying to reposition etc to keep him off that spot! Can I ask you any advice on how you corrected this? Did it take a long time to round out? Did you use a helmet? Thanks!
