Boy with squint

I've noticed in the last couple of weeks that my 3 & a half yr old son has developed a squint....anyone have any advice on why this could be happening?

Check out going to see a Orthoptist  who is a specialist in Strabismus(squint)

What is a squint?

A squint is a condition where the eyes do not look together in the same direction. Whilst one eye looks straight ahead, the other eye turns to point inwards, outwards, upwards or downwards. Squints are common and affect about 1 in 20 children. You might even spot that your baby has a squint. Most squints develop before preschool age, usually by the time a child is three years old.

i would have his eyes checked :)
any headaches? Do he seem to sit close to TV so he can see it better. Is the squinting happening all day or during end of day?
