We are hearing more and more cases surfacing involving Shaken Baby Syndrome
or Shaken Baby/Impact Syndrome. One of the symptoms of SBS is deep retinal
hemorhaging. Many say this hemorhaging is a result of the infants eyes
slamming against the sockets during the shaking period. Others say that it
is impossible for the eyes to move in the sockets like that. What is the
truth? Do an infants eyes have the ability to slam against the sockets
during shaking, or do they not? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
