Rollin eyes vision

My 4 month old child rolling his eyes up, and then outward at times.  This normally happens when we lay him down, feed him, or when he's in a reclined position.  We brought him to the ER and they took a Cat Scan as well as blood work, which both came back negative.  He's still doing it today, and we aren't sure which direction to take.  He also has been rubbing his eyes some time. She also born before twenty two days, Whats the treatment or normal activities, Any ideas?

Do you mean 22 days early? First, Do Not Do Any More CT Scans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This Xray can be harmful to your newborn's brain and other vital organs. It's totally normal for a newborn to have "rolling" eyes. You need to see a Eye MD or pediatric ophthalmologist. They can monitor the "rolling" eyes. If it's progressively worse, then something can be done.
