In an infant visual development occurs in the brain and not the eyes.  The developing brain has to coordinate visual signals from one side to the other.  Signals from the eye nerves travel through optic nerves and then split off to both sides of the brain.  The brain makes sense of those signals by comparing information and coordinating eye movement in the right direction.  Baby’s eyes develop quickly.  At 2 months an infant will follow your face a bit then lose it as it crosses from side to side.  But after 2 months baby can track it from left to right.  Your Loveland Family Practice doctor can help you with any concerns you may have with your new infant.
