Turned Eye - or is it? Lock Rss

Hello all! When my newest addition was 2 & a half weeks old I noticed one of her eyes was turned a little outwards. So I made an appointment at the doctors for her and he confirmed that she has a turned eye and made an appointment for me at the specialist for December. However a few days after this and you can no longer notice it. I'm just wondering if anyone has had any experience with a turned eye that has corrected itself? I will still keep my appointment with the specialist, however fingers crossed he will say it is nothing.

The clinic told me that my daughters eye turned in but not to be concernced and just to watch it. Being a first time mum i was concerned. Whilst at the dr's one day I mentioned it to him and he also noticed it and referred me to a childrens eye specialist. I took her, they did a few tests, put a patch on either eye at one time, put drops in to dialate the pupils did a few more tests. The eye specialist said that her eyes were fine and that some babies are born with a bit more skin (not that its noticable) on the bridge of their nose and that covers the white in their eye and gives the affect that the eye turns. Keep your appointment just to get it checked. I thought that if there was something wrong with my daughters eye, at least I got it early and could then take the necessary action to rectify it, while she was young.

I have a post on here somewhere called "squint" or something similar my MCH nurse sent me to an optomitrist first and he ruled out a squint.

I would def reccomend taking bub to the opt first before the specialist...

Thanks for the input - I guess I will just have to wait and see. Hopefully she will end up being fine as I don't want to go through another eye operation (my 4 year old daughter had a droopy eye lid and got it operated on last year). Anyway fingers crossed and ofcourse it could always be alot worse - so I really should be counting my blessing with 3 beautiful healthy children!

When I took my daughter for her 6 month check up the nurse thought her left eye turned in slightly and referred me to an optometrist.

Took her to the optometrist today and everything is fine. He said the skin fold is quite thin and thats why it looks like it turns in slightly. He said as her nose grows and starts to protude more the skin fold will change and it will remedy the problem.
