eye crossing

I noticed my 3 year old crossing her eyes about four weeks ago, it was not all the time just every now and then.  I took her to see a pediatric Ophthalmologist.  and was not to happy.  He was not very informative he just said she was a little farsighted and she had what you would call suto or sudo strabismus, and he would like to see her again in six months.  Is this normal, should I take her to see someone else.

It is often difficult in a child to tell true crossing from pseudo-crossing.  If you're not satisfied see another pediatric ophthalmologist. If you are then take her back in 6 months as things change fast at her age.
