Early check up: Abnormal alignment of the eyes, strabismus, results when any condition affects the function of the muscles of the eye preventing them from sending a proper image to the brain. To avoid confusion the message from one eye is ignored and without intervention that eye becomes "lazy". Some facial features may give a false impression of strabismus. Early check up will prevent a bad outcome. Take care.
