Although my husband disliked the doctor he is actually very acheived in his field. He is a Pediatric Ophthalmologist and specialized in children with developmental disorders. Our daughter has a Hypoplastic Cerebellum-detected while I was pregnant; this causes problems with balance and coordination. While researching about Esotropia- I found information that said that many children with gross motor developmental defects end up having some form of Strabismus and even more likely to have Esotropia.
Dr. Stephen Glaser has a website with a lot of good information on it www.kidseyecare.com He also participates in and support studies with the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG – a division of National Institute of Health) that further advance the ability to diagnose and treat children with childhood eye disorders.
He also created “Glaser vision” which is a preschool sight screening system. That information is at www.kidseyetest.com
Although I am still processing all of the steps that we may have to take to help my daughters vision, I feel very confident in the doctor that we have in our area.
My husband on the other hand just didn’t like that he made our baby girl cry.
I found your site through a Google Alert for “Strabismus” and I’m glad I did. I am the Executive Director for the Children’s Eye Foundation and I wanted to offer our site as a resource to this group. Our spokesperson is Quarterback Matt Leinart, who had Amblyopia as a child, and we recently put six videos up on YouTube. I invite you to view one of them (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvGQodrgcT8). Hopefully you find something that is useful. Feel free to provide feedback to me.
And…all of your kids are very cute.
There are many reasons why a child might develop esotropia….including an over active focusing system…for information on non-surgical intervention go to http://www.covd.org. For the latest information on children’s vision please go to http://www.mainosmemos.blogspot.com.

Dr. Glaser is also my son’s doctor! He is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. He has been treating my son for just over a year now, and I wouldn’t dream of taking him anywhere else.
