My three and a half year old daughter turns her head mostly to the left and looks out of the extreme corners of her eyes when looking at distance (ie. television, in the car, looking at something far away). The opthomologists (3) say that she does not have strabismus, nystagmus etc and say she'll outgrow it. An optomitrists said she has exotropia and needs vision therapy. We tried the vision therapy at home but it's difficult to get her to complete the exercises. She trips a lot and has difficult going down the stairs. Otherwise she seems to be developing normally.
I appreciate any advice or source for more information on trying to figure out what's going on.

My DSS does this some times. The DR says that it just seems to be the way he is most comfortable looking at something long distance. He doesn't have any vision problems although the DR says he may be farsighted in the future but does not need glasses at this time. Have you tried taking her to a neurologist to make sure the balance/tripping issues aren't due to something more serious?
