we were told that our 14mo old has acid reflux. His eye started to cross at 6 mos. Have seeing an eye dr and his regular dr. Then his eyes started to roll back into his head. each time getting worse and longer. We took him to the hospital were they did eeg,ekg,mri,spinal tap, and ran blood work. evrytg is negative. can this be acid reflux?
Gastric reflux has nothing to do with Squint or Strabismus or Pseudostrabismus(the eye condition, your kid might have).
Strabismus can be either a disorder of the brain in coordinating the eyes, or of one or more of the relevant muscles' power or direction of motion.
Pseudostrabismus is the false appearance of strabismus. It generally occurs in infants and toddlers whose bridge of the nose is wide and flat, causing the appearance of strabismus. With age, the bridge of the child's nose narrows and the folds in the corner of the eyes go away.
You might consult your doctor and a opthalmologist for proper advice on further management.
