Eyes crossing?

I know lots of kids wear glasses because of lazy eye and what not that causes their eyes to cross. But Sam is just really near sighted and has never had problems with is eyes crossing. Only, just this week he was sitting in my bed after just waking up that morning and talking to me. He hadn’t put his glasses on yet and I noticed when he looked at me, one eye turned in a little bit.

Could this just be from him trying to focus? As soon as I put his glasses on him, it went away. I don’t know what to think about it.

One response to “Eyes crossing?

  1. Hmm. I know Zoe crosses her eyes in an attempt to focus, but it’s because she’s farsighted, I haven’t heard of the same accommodation happening with nearsighted kids. Though it sounds like it might be the case since it stopped when he put on his glasses. Do both his eyes have the same prescription or is one eye stronger? I do know that a lot of people whose eyes cross will cross more – or at all – when they’re tired. Maybe see if he crosses his eyes later in the day, when he hasn’t just woken up, and he isn’t wearing his glasses?
