Eye Contact (Overview)

Babies love looking in their parents' eyes, and eye contact can help strengthen the parent-child bond. Just don't be too eager; respect babies wishes when they've had enough and look away.

Could be many things: Making eye contact opens a person up and that makes some people uncomfortable. There are endless possibilities why so guessing is not a good idea.

Ask the patient if they know they are not making eye contact with you. ...Read more

Because you live in washington, usa, i would consider eye contact normal - especially with 2 white people, for instance. Eye contact shows you are listening and engaged. You can judge the other person's emotions by looking at them. ...Read more

Shy: I would say the most likely thing is that the person may simply be shy. We have all seen young children who hide behind their mothers legs and will not look at you. Certaninly other types of behavior can lead to this also. If a patient has an eye disease of certain type, such as inflammatory eye disease, they may be light sensitive and not look at you simply due to lighting situations. ...Read more
