4 year old watching tv rolling eyes and bliking

Hi,
While watching tv our daughter will blink and widen her eyes and roll them to the left.  Does anyone know what thuis may be?  When asked how many fingers we hold up from a distance she always recepted correctly.  
Should we be concerned?  We have not yet taken her to the eye doctor.
Thank you for any guidance.

Yes the child needs to see an ophthalmologist.  Holding your fingers up is not a reasonable test at all for vision any more than screeming in someones ear is a reasonable test for hearing.

Given the delays in see physicians under NHS (from people that live there) suggest you get the process started right now.
