- My son watches TV sideways.
Has anyone else got kids that do or have done this? I’ve mentioned it to his optician who have checked his vision in both eyes. All is fine. Any GPs or Opticians care to comment on here? To be honest i’m getting a feeling he is going to develop a lazy eye, and it sometimes appears habit forming although im not sure. I have to keep nagging him to look straight through both eyes. I’ve looked on the internet and found nothing. Its bizarre. Going to talk to our family GP monday, but wondered if its common? Cheers!Posted 8 years agoMcHamishMember
My niece has a lazy eye. This was noticed because she used to watch TV with one eye. To encourage her lazy eye she wears a patch sometimes (over the good eye).
She’s 6 and a half now, and has been wearing her patch at least a year.
She would basically turn her head to the left and look at the TV with one eye. Rather than lying on her side and watching through both eyes.Posted 8 years agoT666DOMSubscriber
If you’ve been to see your optometrist (providing they know what they’re doing) and the vision is equal with no prescription to speak of I wouldn’t worry. The optom should have thoroughly checked all the muscles of your sons eyes to make sure there’s no weaknesses there.
With things like this it can be just a habit, if you son’s older than 7 he won’t be able to develop a lazy eye.Posted 8 years ago
