2. Complications of Infantile Esotropia

Misaligned eyes in infants usually cause the child to cross fixate, meaning they will use the right eye to look to the left side and vice versa. Some children with the condition develop gross motor skills abnormally. These babies often go from rolling and slithering around to standing. In the most severe cases, surgery may be the only treatment. However, though this surgery makes the eyes look straight, two-eyed vision is not attained.
