I noticed this when my daughter was 2 months old. We visited a pediatric opthalmologist. It is often caused by a coloboma--a congenital malformation of the eye. Her left eye is a few mm smaller than her right.
I would definitely get it checked out. Vision loss from this condition can be anywhere from near normal vision to almost blind in the affected eye.
My 11 month old's eyes have been unbalanced since she was born -- one is noticably bigger than the other. I was hoping that they would eventually even out, but it hasn't happened yet.
Could it be a chiropractic problem? I'm thinking imbalance of the bone structure of the face or something ...
Any insights appreciated!
