A six month-three day old Caucasian infant presented to the eye clinic for a follow-up appointment. His mother stated that he is “off balance a lot” and “gets purple spots around his eyes because he gags a lot”. She also noticed that he has a “keyhole shape in his right eye” and has excessive tearing with “gooey eyes”. The patient was born at thirty-eight weeks with a frank breech and Cesarean section. It was also reported that the patient was not breathing at the time of birth. His past surgical history included multiple gastrointestinal surgeries. His medications included Prevacid and Omnicef, and he had no known allergies to any drugs.
