My son is two, and for the last week has been making funny faces. He blinks several times in a row, and it really seems like his eyes are uncomfortable. At first I thought he was doing it just for fun, to see what it was like to peek through his eyelashes, but he does it even when he's busy doing something else.
I thought it might be the fault of this LED flashing light stick that he got and would stare at, so I threw it away after day one of blinking, but he's kept on going. Both my husband and I have glasses, but surely he doesn't need glasses yet! :(
My husband thinks he must have gotten a scratch on his eyeball and it'll heal soon, or that he just has dry eyes from some sort of allergy. The blinking does seem to be happening a little less in the last few days. I'm a little more concerned that it's something serious.
I'm looking for any related experiences that you have had. How did it end?
