If you are unsure whether your child has some sight, watch to see :
|Does she close her eyes in bright sunlight or turn her head toward a light?|
|Does she bring objects close to her eyes?||Does she follow slowly moving objects with her head?|
|Does she always tilt her head in a certain way?||Does she move her hand back and forth in front of her eyes?|
|Does she reach for objects that do not make sounds?|
If you notice any of these things, you can learn more about what they mean by reading the next few sections.
