Eyes that do not move in the same direction at the same time are
called misaligned eyes. Misaligned eyes may be either present at birth or
caused by disease or injury.
Babies' eyes are sometimes slightly misaligned until about age 3 to 4
months, when they usually begin to track normally. Misaligned eyes that persist
after age 6 months should be evaluated by a doctor. Misaligned
eyes that occur after an injury or nervous system problem (stroke or seizure)
may mean a serious problem.
