Squint Eyes

Good day
My daugther is 12 months and have squint eyes from 8 / 9 months. She only sat at about 10 months and don' t crawl yet. Does the squint eyes have a effect on the crawling and motoring sklls? Seeing a dr ... probably going to operate. Her eyes are about 30 / 40 degrees out. Is squint eyes genetic?

Hallo Wanda
Squint eyes can be genetic but it is not necessarily so. Your baby needs to be evaluated by an opthalmologist as soon as possible - if you don't correct a squint early your baby's vision won't develop normally. Sometimes an operation is needed, sometimes only closing up the "healthy eye" so that the "lazy" eye can start working, sometimes glasses (yes even in very small children!) is needed. See
