In brief: Many

Anything that blocks light into the eye or affects the focusing of the eye or damaged structures in the eye will cause the visual system not to develop properly.
It is best to have a screening eye exam to identify visual problems early.

In brief: Many possible causes

Children may be born with abnormalities of the eyes or visual system, such as congenital cataracts or glaucoma.
There may be problems with eye muscle balance or focusing, or children may have problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmastism. All children should be screened for eye and vision problems by their pediatrician, and referred to a specialist if required.
