no... those could be signs of a lot of different things. it is not necessarily a stroke. if it is recurring then you need to see a doctor.... it sounds to me like a petite mal seizure, in which the seizure does not effect motor function but it does effect brain function.

Hi, I know a lot about aviation and how to fly planes, and I am 15 years old! My dream is to become an Airline Pilot, however I do have a lazy eye. The eye can correct itself if I shut my other eye and if I had 20/20 vision in each eye (including the lazy eye) would that be acceptable for a class 1 & 2 Medical examination? I have also looked at other websites, which says you can get a SODA and other government waivers, so if you can prove that you can fly the plane, they can accept you! Is this correct? If you do not have this information, could you please inform me of where I could get the information.

I have a 22 month old daughter with lazy eye. Most often her left eye goes out to the side, but occasionally her right eye will go out and up a bit. I took her to a local eye doctor who gave me very little information and said because she is to young to test her vision she cant be treated right now. Can she be treated at this age and if so what are the treatments?
