What is Strabismus?

Strabismus is a condition in which the eyes are out of alignment.  An individual with strabismus is sometimes said to have “crossed eyes” or a “lazy eye”. 

This condition most-commonly involves children, but adults can also be affected.

Symptoms

In addition to crossed eyes, other Strabismus symptoms include:

  • Double vision
  • Uncoordinated eye movements
  • Eyes that do not aim in the same direction
  • Lack of depth perception
  • Squinting with one eye

Diagnosis and Treatment

Strabismus is usually diagnosed during a routine but comprehensive eye exam.

Once diagnosed, treatment will vary depending on the severity, type, and cause of the Strabismus. That could include:

  • Eyeglasses or contact lenses
  • Eye drops
  • An eye patch
  • Eye muscle training programs
  • Surgery

Suggested Course of Action

If you suspect you or your children have any of the conditions related to Strabismus and have yet to be diagnosed, call us for an examination by our medical eye care optometrists at 419-578-2020.

If after your examination it is determined that eyeglasses will not correct the problem and surgery is required, you will be referred to our Strabismus surgeons.
