Double vision: The most common cause of double vision is misaligned eyes. Misalignment that causes "stacked" vision is less common, and should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist.

How can I make sure my baby is warm enough at night without using blankets?

Dress appropriately: In general when dressing your baby you can dress them as you would dress yourself plus one thin layer. In wintertime, depending on your home temperature, it is usually best to dress him with a short sleeve snap top, followed with a warm footed one piece. If this is not enough, add another layer and see if your baby is sweating. In the warmer months remove layers accordingly. No blankets needed.
A member asked:

Why has my baby started waking up hysterical at night?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson

New stage/habits: This may be prior to your baby reaching a new developmental stage, hunger, a need for soothing, and/or may be related to an illness (fever). Another cause is a night terror, an episode during which your baby may be screaming but is not really awake. Just check on him to make sure he's ok but do not intervene. You may change the terror by slightly waking him just before the time it occurs nightly.

What can I do if i've already lost some vision from glaucoma?

Good followup: The key to slowing down vision loss from glaucoma is having regular testing with a glaucoma care specialist and using a therapy that lowers eye pressure enough to preserve vision while avoiding side effects. If it's a medication, then proper usage and compliance/persistence are critical.
