Question I have a 5 yr old boy, which at birth I noticed my son looked cross eyed. I made it an issue with his pediatrician and was referred to an optomologist and I explained to his the concern I had with my son eye, he then did his exam and stated to me that the space between his eyes was wide so that caused his eye to move outward and inward. I was very unhappy with the exam and walked away. I have noticed that lately it has gotten worse and I have been doing some research and I feel it is possible he has Duane Syndrome. I've had a hard time finding a doctor in Fresno California who can maybe exam him. His teacher have almost brought it to my attention that it looks as if it is affect his vision in school so he does what I call the pirate face. I am asking if you can possible help me fine a doctor in my area who can assist me. Thank you for your time
Sincerely, Jessica Mabry
Answer As I am from NewJersey and Florida I do not know any eye doctors in Fresno, California. Why not call the local medical society or association for a referral to a Pediatric Ophthalmologist in your area or call the American Optometric association for a referral to a pediatric optometrist. Good luck. Dr Ken PS your son will
