Hi,
It seems that you have doubt of having squint or it is there nothing can be done at present,we have to wait and watch the condition,
I think as she will look all around and frequent movements of her eye ball gradually she will be alright.
Take ophthalmologit opinion.

I had shown her to a specialist and he started the treatement - atrophine sulphate for dilation (3 days), check-up, use of occular patches on right eye along with the spectacles, later increased the spectacle number (spherical and cylindrical)..he said that it seems that he had to proceed with surgery.
