When I'm playing with my 6 month old, I notice that one of her eyes (always the same eye) seems to just wander away while the other one looks at me or her toy or whatever. She had crossed eyes as a newborn, but it went away and she seems like she can see just fine, [ex: she squeals whenever she sees a kitten run across the street on the other side of the block and that takes decent eyesight] but I don't want her to have a lazy eye! Is that a "baby" thing that goes away or is that a permanent thing? :(Answer Question
You need to take her to an Opthamologist. The earlier treated the better.

If you take her in they can help I'm sure. There are babies that young with glasses if needed. It won't hurt to have her checked and be on the safe side. I wish I had taken my son that early but I didn't. I have with my other two and that resulted in my two year old (at the time)getting glasses and now my seventeen month old may need them. They go to a pediatric Ophthalmologist every six months. My oldest son is going through patch therapy for two years now. His last appointment his Dr. said he could start wearing his patch less.
