    Infant Sight Problems

    I am the mother of a 11 week old and I have been noticing that he has problems looking at things. I did all the the tests they recommend online, like shining a light in his eye and holding objects in front to see if he tracks it. I have noticed his eyes don't dilate when a light is shined in front of them. Has anyone had this happen?

    Maybe you should make an appt with an opthalmalogist.

    My baby was born 12/20, 2 months premature and the opthal dr is going to do an ROP test to check his eyes.

    I hope everything works out well.
