Why are so many Asian babies cross eyed?

Cross Eye: Look at the reflection of the light on pupils; it should be the same on both eyeballs. Don't look at how eyes appear - the epicanthal fold gives a false cross-eye appearance.
Appearance not real. The nasal bridge of asian populations gives rise to a false cross eyed appearance. The only way to assess this issue in some babies of any ethnic group is from the direct front. When looking from an angle, the wide spread nasal bridge of the young child can yield this false appearance.As the face changes with age the appearance subsides in most.
