My daughter (now 2y3mnths) has been diagnosed with Duane's syndrome (no type was identified) by a Ophthalmologist. My own layman's view (after reading much up on the topic) is that my daughter probably does not have Duane's because her left eye does not retract during adduction and there is no palpebral fissure narrowing. Her left eye remains at about 10 degrees off center and adducts too much (i.e. looks further right than her right eye) but the globe does not retract and the eye opening does not narrow. There is no abduction from this position - she cannot look further left that is. She appears to be able to focus with her left eye but favors her right eye and normally does not turn her head to obtain binocular vision. Also, I have photo's of her at birth and up to about 3 months where both her eyes look straight ahead. I am going for a second opinion tomorrow but would like to know: Is it possible that Duane's can be wrongly diagnosed and if yes, what other conditions does she probably have if it is assumed that it is not Duane's?
Thank you and best regards,
