Hey everyone! I'm a first-time mom of a 2-year-old toddler and I'm a bit concerned about his vision. Lately, I've noticed that he struggles to recognize familiar objects and seems to have difficulty focusing on things that are not too close to him. I tried to observe if he's squinting or rubbing his eyes, but I haven't noticed it. I'm not sure if this is just a normal developmental phase or if it's something serious. Can anyone share their experience or tips on how to tell if a toddler is having trouble with his or her vision? Thank you in advance!
Hello everyone! I'm a father to two toddlers, and we recently found out that our youngest is having some trouble with his vision. It took us a little time to pick up on it, but we finally noticed that he would tilt his head to the side to see things and complained about headaches often. We took him to an ophthalmologist who confirmed that he had strabismus (crossed eyes) and referred us to a pediatric eye specialist to get him checked up further. It was a little daunting at first, but we were able to catch it early enough to have it corrected with eye patches and corrective glasses. Early intervention can make all the difference, so it's good to know what to look out for and act quickly if you suspect anything unusual.
