WHAT LSH WANTS YOU TO KNOW: Before reaching maturity, your baby’s eye growth passes through stages, similar to how she will hit various milestones at different times in her development, The Alberton Record reports.
Dr. Claire Cullen, an ocular surgeon specializing in pediatric ophthalmology, explains that a baby’s vision is the least developed of all their senses at birth. Your baby’s capacity to clearly perceive objects, concentrate on them at various distances, and follow them as they move will improve as she grows.
At three months, for instance, it may still look like her eyes are working independently of one another. She may also appear to be looking aimlessly around the room. This should improve in three to four months, but if your infant is still having trouble with both eyes, consult your pediatrician, who will schedule an eye check-up with an ophthalmologist. Early referral can lessen the likelihood of sight loss.
