Parents should keep a watchful eye on their baby’s vision early on, looking for cues to when their baby is looking directly at them, and using their eyes in unison to watch a moving object or look at something in their line of vision. Most parents will notice when things don’t seem right.
If by 6 months these signs of development are not happening, scheduling an appointment with an Dr. Sam Dhaliwal & Associates expert is highly recommended.
