  • Is My Daughter's Lazy Eye Inherited?


    My husband obtained a lazy eye after an eye injury and multiple surgeries. Now our newborn was born with one and it’s the same eye. Is there a chance she inherited it from him even though he wasn't born with it?


    While some cases of strabismus or eye misalignment appear to be inherited, there is no reason to believe that your husband’s injury and eye condition were inherited by your daughter.
