Pseudostrabismus is the false appearance of misaligned eyes. When eyes are truly misaligned, the condition is referred to as strabismus. In strabismus, the eyes can drift inward, outward, upward or downward. An infant’s eyes may drift in or out at times, but this small variable alignment can be perfectly normal. When a child begins focusing on the environment, at about two or three months of age, the eyes should be straight most or all of the time.
