Eyes Not Tracking Together
Binocular vision: Think of the brain as a computer (cpu) that receives input from both eyes to simultaneously see in 3d and in focus. Both eyes need to move in rhythm for this and also properly aligned therein. There are various ocular to neural causes for poor tracking that need to be investigated.
Could be important: Depends a lot on the age. For the first few weeks of life, it is common for the eyes to appear misaligned and "not track well" together. After a couple months, most babies will fixate well and the eyes track well together. Mention the symptom to your pediatrician, and see if a referral to an eye md or pediatric ophthalmologist is advisable.
Depends: Babies eyes do not need to completely track together until around nine months of age. If the eye exam is otherwise normal, and your child is under 9 months of age, I would follow. If one eye is constantly looking in one direction, that is different, and the child should be seen.
Strabismus.: This is a laymans description of an eye muscle disorder that can be diagnosed and treated by an ophthalmologist.

Depends: Very young infants in the first week or so of life may not appear to focus or track well. Full term infants should look at faces and focus some on objectsfly 2 weeks old if they are the right distance from their eyes. Many infants will cross their eyes at times, but that should stop by 6 months old. Any other concerns should prompt a visit to the baby's pediatrician.

Questionable term: This is a common term used by optometrists who define this to indicate that somehow the eyes do not work well together. It is part of a workup they have devised to try and get the naive into programs of 'optometric visual therapy' which is an expensive exercise in generally futile but lucrative office examinations and "treatments"
My 19m old is right on track, makes eye contact, and knows many words. However, she repeats those words constantly. Is this normal for her age?

10 week old sometimes avoids eye contact (particularly while being held). Other times, he coos, smiles n tracks well but mostly while lying down. Help?
Development varies: Slightly with each infant, and if he is making good eye contact while lying down, cooing and smiling, it sounds like he is on track. It may be that when he is upright, there are so many more sights to see that his eye contact with you is intermittent, compared to looking at you vs a boring ceiling when lying down. Keep talking and interacting with you baby, but share concerns at next check up.
I have my first appointment with a neuro ophthalmologist tomorrow because of eye tracking issues. What will happen at this appointment?
Examination: A neuro-ophthalmologist is a specialist in the interaction between the nervous system and eye function. You will have a complete eye examination, an emphasis on eye motion, probably a field of vision test and if anything is positive you might have some radiological exams ordered. The testing is low stress, many consider fun, and you can have tracking dysfunction evaluated. Don't worry.
Could dry contact lenses cause issues with eye tracking when being examined for concussion? PT said some difficulty tracking w left eye.
No, your PT was: Checking your cranial nerves, which include those to all the muscles that move your eyes about in different directions. So, see your doctor for a neurological exam if you don't know whether your " visual tracking" problem pre-existed, or was present, prior to your injury.
Conjunctivitis: Your child has conjunctivitis. If it occurs only at night there may be something in his bedroom that he is allergic to. One of the chief culprits could be stuffed animals. See your doctor for eyedrops after you have baby proof the bedroom.
Sounds like: Blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelids). This is a rare phenomenon that is caused by unusual activity of a nervous mechanism in the brain, basically of unknown cause. It may only be temporary but if it persists you should seek help.
For 24 hours now, it seems as if my eyes are refusing to work together. If I have both of them open, they refuse to focus on the same object.?
