My 2 month baby likes to watch tv, or baby clips on the ipad. Would it harm her vision if she watch at this age?

My 2 month baby likes to watch tv, or baby clips on the ipad. Would it harm her vision if she watch at this age?

Not vision as much : As it delays acquisition of language & social communication, because it provides no reciprocal social interaction. The aap recommends no screen time till age 2 yrs. Talk to her with her face ~ 12" from yours; smile & mimic her good $ coos. Get down on the floor for tummy time play with her. Customize the aap's healthy child app for your baby's age. After 2 yrs., limit screen time to 2 hrs./day. ...Read more

Suddenly can't see out of eye the other day i was watching tv and i started having double vision. Then the next day i woke up and my left eye was blurry and i couldn't see out of it at all. I've been getting migraines my entire life and a few hours after

The : The symptoms are not typical for a migraine alone. You noted two distinct and dramatic symptoms (double vision, blur), separated in time, and i think you indicate a headache as well. More history will help to zero in on the problem, and if you were my patient i'd have you come in promptly (i.e. That day) to figure out what's going on. While migraine (which can change in presentation over time), loss of control of a pre-existing eye muscle imbalance, and/or surface irritation would be the most benign cause, other, time sensitive and potentially dangerous situations should be investigated immediately. You might have a vascular cause needing immediate attention (e.g. Transient ischemic attack, temporal arteritis or other inflammations) or other issues. My advice: see your eye md asap. ...Read more
