Squint or strabisus is also called ‘crossed eyes', occurs when the eyes appear to be misaligned and point in different directions. It can occur at any age, but is most common in infants and young children. Parents may notice their baby's eyes wandering from time to time during the first few months of life, especially when the infant is tired. This happens because the baby is still learning to focus. Most babies outgrow this by three months of age.
