My 4.5yr old DD went to the optometrist for her first checkup late last year. The optometrist noted that her eyes turned outward when she was focusing and this was something that we should review again in 6 months. When we went for the follow up visit yesterday, he said that it hadn't self corrected and that she would need glasses.
I guess my DH and I were a little surprised as we hadn't noticed anything and our DD hadn't mentioned not being able to see clearly/getting headaches or any of the usual symptoms that I would have expected.
Has anyone else had similar experiences with their kids eyes?
