Our expert says:
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.
