Crossing her eyes for 'fun'

My DD has this new thing where she makes faces by crossing her eyes. Both eyes inward saying she is looking ta her nose or being crazy eyes. Anyway. I know she is playing and it is forced not a vision issue but can doing this a lot cause problems?

  • According to my uncle, an eye doctor. Crossing the eyes CAN cause damage. Talk to an eye doctor. When my son would do that my uncle would explain why it's NOT good to do so. I don't remember what he said can happen because that was a long time ago. I will have to ask him when I go in for my checkup.

  • Just ignore the actions and dont over react. From my experience, the more attention they recieve seems to encourage the action.
