Hello there. It could be that the kid is suffering from a eye infection. Get it checked out by a ophthalmologist. I would suggest you get a random sugar checked once to clear your doubt. Regards

No. Sticky years are not a south of diabetes. They may indicate a chronic eye infection. Please show to an ophthalmologist to confirm the same. You can get a blood sugar level done of you are concerned about diabetes in the kid.
