Eye discomfort

A parent states that his daughter is consistently ripping off her glasses and complaining that her eyes hurt and requesting that they be rubbed. The behavior occurs daily from the time the child arrives home from school until bed time (for the last 3 years). In May of last year, this child underwent surgery to "straighten her eyes from the side to the front." Could this be related?

SAC approved answer

If the eyes are not red and eye exam is normal then this is almost certainly (and very common in people with CdLS) behavioral.
