    Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus

    If the baby has extremely poor vision in both eyes, hand-waving or eye-poking may be first noticed at the age of 6 weeks to 2 months. Poor vision can be confirmed by watching the baby’s response to a bright light. Failure to blink the eyes indicates that the baby has profoundly reduced vision. Irregular “roving” eye movements or constant or intermittent nystagmus also indicate reduced visual function.
