If a child was born with strabismus of the left eye, when is the best time to correct it?

Evaluate quickly: If the left eye is consistent turned out of alignment (usually inwards in this age group), it needs to be evaluated to rule out tumors, cataract, glaucoma and other conditions which might need immediate attention. This is imperative since you say it was present at birth. Other conditions such as ordinary misalignment or refractive issues usually are not at birth and are fixed later. ...Read more

My child is having pain in her left ear can barly see out the left eye , what can that be?

Serious condition: This could be an ear infection, or periorbital cellulitis, which can be very serious. You did say if there is a fever, nor how long this has been going on. If there is a fever, then your child should be seen promptly. This can be fixed with Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (a strong version of amoxicillin) if your child is not allergic to penicillin. Get it checked as the vision could be affected. ...Read more
