Did you try the old way: Look at an object far off, point to it with your finger, close one eye, did the finger move?
THX Doc, yes we did and she is not sure or confused when we try it. She is embarrassed about wearing glasses and I think she doesn't want to admit anything she perceives as being wrong with her eyes. I tried to tell her it was normal but I don't think she believes me. According to her dad she has an appt with eye Dr in about a month. We may have have to wait till then to find out for sure.

Sheet of typing paper with a 1" hole on the center. With both eyes open hold at arms lenght using both hands. Hold below line of sight. Concentrate eyes on an object at distance. Raise paper while watching object. Close one eye, did object disappear? Try several times to make young lady comfortable, it can be a little confusing. And yes, there is always the embarassment factor when dealing with children. Especially where glasses and peer pressure are concerned.

Have her put both index fingers and thumbs together making a semi diamond shape in the middle. have her look through that opening and find an object, them slowly bring the hands toward the face and see which eye it in front of. Go slow and it should work. Try it your self first .
