Children with Mobius syndrome often experience great difficulty controlling eye movements on the affected side and making facial expressions. Other symptoms of the condition include:

  • Inability to smile
  • Inability to frown
  • Inability to blink
  • Inability to move eyes laterally
  • Inability to make ‘sucking’ mechanism
