Hello, Umm Nu'man, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Eyeball movement is regulated by many factors, ranging from eye muscles, nerves that regulate eye movement, visual clarity, eye nerves (retina), to conditions in the brain. The baby's eyeball that sways out of control can be caused by interference from one of these structures. To determine the cause, it is necessary to have a series of examinations such as visual examination, color vision examination, examination using a special flashlight (slit-lamp), brain and nerve scans (example: CT-scan, MRI).
The examinations are an attempt to find the exact cause of the condition that occurs, so that treatment can be appropriate in accordance with the cause and severity. Brain examination is done to see whether the abnormal movements of the eyes of the mother's child have an effect on the condition of the child's brain. However, examination and therapy decisions depend on patient consent, of course, must weigh the benefits and risks if done and not done. Talk more about this to the family and the treating doctor.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
