The baby's eyes are big and small, you must be alert to this situation, otherwise it will affect the child's vision

For children, large and small eyes are very common eye diseases, which not only affect the appearance, but also affect the vision. Large and small eyes are caused by the inconsistent height of the eyelids on the two eyes, causing the two eyes to look larger and smaller. Large and small eyes are mainly divided into two types: physiological and pathological.

Physiological big and small eyes

  • One pair of eyes
In life, you will always hear some The parent said, "Hey, why does my baby have a double eyelid in one eye and a single eyelid in the other?" A single pair of eyes will visually cause the two eyes to be different in size, but it does not affect the child's vision development. . It may also gradually converge with the age of the child.
  • Double eyelids are wide and narrow
Obviously they are double eyelids, but the two eyelids are wide and narrow, and big and small eyes appear. This is because in infants and young children, there is more fat on the eyelids than adults. If the two eyes have different eyelid fat, big and small eyes will appear. Especially for babies with inner double eyelids, the big and small eyes may be more obvious. This kind of big and small eyes caused by the difference in the fat between the left and right eyelids will generally improve with the gradual growth of the baby, so there is no need to worry too much.
  • One big and one small under the action of external force
For example, after a child is bitten by a mosquito, the single eyelid will appear red and swollen locally. For example, a child bumps and hurts the eyelid, causing a single eyelid to swell. Under the action of external force, the small and large eyes that cause children to appear are temporary, and will gradually return to their original shape as the swelling of the eyelids subsides.

Pathological big and small eyes

Pathological big and small eyes, mainly refers to congenital ptosis. Most of the congenital ptosis has already formed in the mother's womb, and it is only slowly discovered after birth. Generally, 4-5 days after birth, the baby's eyes cannot be fully opened, and even when parents use their hands to break off the drooping eyelids, the extent of opening is very small. Especially in moderate and severe congenital ptosis, drooping eyelids will block the baby's sight, which may cause visual deprivation amblyopia. Congenital ptosis, not only will affect the child's vision, but also may cause the child's inferiority complex, parents must pay attention. If the child has a small eye on one side, it appears that it is not fully open. And the drooping eyelids block the line of sight, and you need to change the direction to have a better vision, so you should be alert to whether the child has congenital ptosis. If it is congenital ptosis, surgery is needed to correct it at the appropriate age. If the child's big and small eyes seem to be more obvious, and the parents cannot distinguish whether it is physiological or pathological. It is recommended that parents take their children to the hospital for treatment and prescribe the right medicine.
