I have a 5 month old son, I recently noticed that in some pictures of him, that his left eye is cross eyed. Could it be because I used the flash when I took the picture.. Is this something I should be concerned about?

  • Do you see it when you don't take pictures?? He may need glasses if his eye is turning in(that is usually a sign) Speak to a doctor about it.

  • When it comes to eyesight, don't guess about it. I would make an appointment with a pediatric Ophthalmologist. Just my 2 cents. I wish I did with my son earlier than we did.

  • No, it only happens in the pictures. His dads eyes do the same thing, and his dad has pretty bad eyes. I probably will ask his doctor about it. Thanks!

  • If it is only in pictures than i would say that you are right that it is the flash doing it. However if you notice it when you are just looking at him i would say somehting to his doctor about it.
