Hi,
My son is 3 years old and since last one month is blinking his left eye more than the right one. Earlier I thought something might have got inside but he doesnt complain of any pain, its not watery or red. At time he rubs his left eye but thats it nothing abnormal. I got some OTC eye drops and have been trying that but have not been quite succesfull in putting the eye drops as he screems at the top of his voice even at the sight of that.

I have reduced his time spent in watching TV, but that also doesnt seem to be effecting the blinking.
It is not very regular or following a pattern, one day blinking would be less the other day it would increase.

Should I be worried?

Thanks.

Regards
:confused:
