    Re: The baby eyes is straighten out.

    "The baby has strabismus" is medical jargon for "the baby is cross-eyed." If the baby were cured of its strabismus you could say "It's eyes have straightened out" or "been straightened out."

    Re: The baby eyes is straighten out.

    I've never heard of strabismus. For me, that baby is cross-eyed. If the baby's eyes became "normal" sometime later, I would probably say something like "Her eye problem has been sorted out. She's not cross-eyed any more". I wouldn't use "straightened out".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
