Turkey Medicals gives you update for childcare in this sensitive topic. Eye shift (strabismus) is a common condition among children. As the eyes are used in infancy and childhood, the vision system matures and vision functions develop. When a child has a slip in one eye, the brain neglects the image from the sliding eye and only perceives the image from the normal, well-seeing eye.
