I have just noticed my 3 yr old son has started rolling his eyes back and to the sides. I can't tell if he's doing it on purpose or involuntarily. It seems to happen when he is getting in trouble, which is why I initially thought maybe he was just avoiding eye contact but I'm not so sure now. Today when he dd it he didn't seem to be aware of me talking to him and then he looked straight at me and seemed quite normal. He then told me his eyes hurt and about 3 minutes later fell asleep. He has been complaining on and off of sore eyes for about a week now, I had initially put it down to him getting over being sick recently (ear infection, cold and conjunctivitis rolled in to one) but again after today I'm wondering if it's something more serious? Am I just being paranoid? Sometimes particularly lately with a house full of sick people I've been feeling like a bit of an over sensitive mother.
