My 7 week old favors turning his head to the right

Over the past few weeks my son has increased the amount of time he spends turning his head to the right, and sometimes fights my attempts to turn it. Any suggestions as to how this might be corrected? I've heard that it can cause vision troubles...

Sometimes the muscles in their necks tighten up on one side, and they build up muscles on the other. Don't force his neck, you can hurt him. But you can encourage him to look at things on the left side, or carry him on your other arm so he is forced to do it on his own. I have no idea about the vision thing, but I know the muscle part is true. My son was doing the same thing at about the same age.
