My New Born Baby Eyes Are Sticky Wt Could Be The Reason
Blocked tear ducts: The most common causes of sticky eyes in newborns are either blocked tear ducts (that drain tears from the eyes to the nose) or conjunctivitis (an infection of the skin lining the inside of the eyelids and the outside of the white of the eye). Blocked tear drains eventually open on their own in most children by 1 year of age, but see an eye doctor to determine the best course of action. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 4month baby has a optics nerves detached from both eyes thin and pale they said can this be fixed?
Not possible: I am sorry to say that this is a congenital failure of optic nerve development and cannot be improved.

The residual vision depends upon how much of the nerve remains and whether the eye is normally developed at the end of the nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Your pediatrician can advise you if you need to see a pediatric ophthalmologist. ...Read more
