When there is strabismus in newborns and what can be done to speed up the process
Strabismus (strabismus) in children is a common problem. In infants in the first weeks of life, such a defect may be a variant of the norm due to the weakness of the eye muscles. If within 4 months the violation does not go away on its own or is aggravated, parents should contact a pediatrician or a children’s ophthalmologist. With early diagnosis, strabismus in newborns can easily be treated without surgery.
Strabism is the absence of synchronous eye coordination. The cause of the pathology is the violation of the brain region responsible for the control of the visual organs, and not in the malfunctions of the eye muscles. Therefore, specialists do not recommend physical exercises to correct the defect.
When strabismus in newborns does not occur within four months, the brain begins to ignore the signal from one eye, which leads to a sharp deterioration of vision. In medicine, this condition is called amblyopia.
Determine the diseases of the visual organs is not difficult. The sight of the baby does not focus on one object, its directions from both pupils intersect each other. Sometimes eyeballs can involuntarily move up, down or towards the bridge of the nose. Such states are called isotropy.
