Doctor :   but i need to examine the baby to be sure
Doctor :   A young baby should be especially interested in your face, and should make you feel special by smiling at you frequently
Doctor :   Any eye problem can cause a child to lose interest in his environment, but extreme near or far-sightedness (refractive error) is a possible reason that this happens
Doctor :   When your babyĆ¢??s eyes work properly, they move together as a team so that they can focus on the same object

Doctor :   When your baby s eyes work properly, they move together as a team so that they can focus on the same object. This allows your baby to have three-dimensional vision Normally, babies develop this ability by the age of three months
